Brody Grant, senior at Boyd Buchanan School, was honored at the meeting of the Nancy Ward Chapter NSDAR at Mountain City Club.  He was the recipient of the Good Citizen's Scholarship Essay contest and was awarded a certificate and medal.  This award honors a senior student in a public or private high school who best exemplifies the characteristics of leadership, service, dependability and patriotism. 

Brody exemplifies this recognition in several ways. He is senior class president, has raised nearly $7,000 for breast cancer awareness through the American Cancer Society; and is president of his school's National Honor Society.  He attended American Legion Boys State and is on the Chattanooga Mayor's Youth Council. He plays varsity football and varsity lacrosse. 

He will be attending William & Lee University in Virginia to study pre-law and play varsity football.

The Good Citizenship certificate and medal was presented by Chapter Regent Linda Crawford and Hattie Duro, chapter chairman of DAR Good Citizens committee.
