I have been given the honor of presenting the local chapter DAR Good Citizenship Award to a 6th grader this week.
I actually remember this being awarded when I was in 6th grade. I also remember being a bit disappointed when I didn’t win it. So, here’s to you, Karma! On a much more serious note, I’m thrilled to be giving this award to a deserving kid this year.
Qualities exhibited by the student:
Honor: Honesty and high principles
Service: Cooperation, meritorious behavior, bringing honor to school or community
Courage: Mental and physical, determination to overcome obstacles
Leadership: Ability to lead others, good sportsmanship
Patriotism: Fundamental Americanism
