The Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizens Award luncheon was held Wednesday, April 24 at the Sunset Coastal Grill in Port St. Joe.
The Good Citizens from the area schools are Kassandra Marie Favre of Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School, Shelby Anna Wood of Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School and Christina Michelle Collins of Franklin County High School.
After the luncheon the students read their essays, “Our American Heritage and our Responsibility to Preserve It.”
The Good Citizen Award is given annually to a member of each senior class in Gulf and Franklin counties and is chosen by faculty and students on a merit basis. The student selected must have the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.
The Good Citizens are presented with a certificate and a DAR pen at the luncheon and will receive a scholarship at graduation or Awards Day at their schools.
