QUINCY — The Dorothy Quincy Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has announced the winners of the DAR Good Citizen Awards from six area high schools.

Administrators at each school choose the senior in their school who best demonstrates the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism and submit a packet of information about that student and their activities and grades throughout high school.

If the student chooses, they may enter an essay on a topic provided by the NSDAR. These essays must be written in the presence of a member of their school’s administration and without reference material. The packets and essays are then judged at the local level and the winning student’s material is sent on to the district level for judging there. Ultimately, the winning students are judged at state and national levels for scholarships.

Area high school DAR Good Citizens are:

  • Dulaney Bennett, Quincy High School
  • Dennis Paul Boccardi III, Unity High School
  • Gavin Christian, Payson Seymour High School
  • Ada Kurk, Quincy Notre Dame High School
  • Marissa Mintle, Liberty High School
  • Ashlan Tullock, Camp Point Central High School

Boccardi was winner of the local essay contest. His material has been sent to District V for judging at that level.

Local DAR Good Citizens were presented with their certificates and awards on Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Lorenzo Bull House.
