Landon McLendon was chosen by the school faculty as the student who best exemplifies the qualities of a good citizen.

Those qualities are honor, service, courage, leadership and patriotism.

Landon is looking forward to starting high school in the fall and we look forward to following his accomplishments over the next four years.

The DAR Youth Citizenship Program began in 1933 with the goal of recognizing the outstanding young people in our community who exhibit the qualities of good citizenship in their homes, schools and throughout the community.

One of the most rewarding activities for our chapter members is the opportunity to interact with Heard County students.

In addition to supporting DAR Schools around the country, we also support our local schools throughout the year in various programs and activities.

Contact your Heard County chapter at jamesstewartchapterdar@gmail.com with any questions regarding this and our other programs.

You may also call (770) 856-3354 to chat with a chapter representative.
