Ada — DAR Good Citizens winners recognized

Chimney Hill chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution extended an invitation to area high schools to participate in DAR Good Citizens program and scholarship contest. Four of the seven Pontotoc County schools accepted the invitation. 

One high school senior was selected as that school’s DAR Good Citizen, exhibiting the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. The contest consisted of two parts: 70 percent personal and 30 percent essay.

At the DAR December meeting/reception, four students were recognized with Citizens pin, certificate and wallet recognition card. The winner won $25 and the opportunity to enter the district contest. 

Three of the students were unable to attend because of prior commitments. Ruth Ann Taylor, Good Citizens chairman made a presentation to Jacie Sellers, the student representing Latta High School. 

The local DAR chapter winner was Jacie Sellers and she received the $25 and read her essay to the chapter. The other finalists were Megan Dillard, Ada High School; Kalli Mowdy, Vanoss High School; and Wyatt Shaw, Byng High School.
