As a part of its Good Citizens Program, the Daughters of the American Revolution encourages and rewards the qualities of good citizenship among high school seniors. This award is based on a list of school and outside activities, letters of recommendation, and an essay contest. The essay subject is unknown to the student before the contest, and the student must complete the essay without any advanced preparation or research.
This year the Good Citizen Award goes to Cameron Michael Gonzalez of Silverdale Baptist Academy. Cameron has been the recipient of a variety of scholastic awards and honors and has maintained a 4.0 or higher GPA throughout high school. In addition to academic excellence he has been an active leader in various school and community service projects such as the recent Chattanooga Area Food Bank’s Hunger Wipeout. His other leadership roles include Class Officer, manager of the high school volleyball team, and National Senior Beta Club President. Cameron completely exemplifies the DAR Good Citizenship qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism.
The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education.
