(Franklin) — The James Stewart Chapter National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution is pleased to announce that Levi “Tate” Gosdin has been selected as the DAR Good Citizen Award Recipient by the Heard County Class of 2014. Tate is the son of Ray and Denise Gosdin of Roopville, GA.
Tate’s peers, the students in the class of 2014, chose him for this award. As a senior, Tate is looking forward to college but has not yet selected a career path. Tate has competed in Skills USA for the past two years, winning at both local and state levels in teamwork and cabinet making.
He has been on the yearbook staff for four years and enjoys working with the staff to produce an outstanding yearbook. He has been an active member of the FFA, serving as vice president last year and as its president this year. He is chairing the committee for the FFA Fall Festival and is working with all the school clubs to make it the biggest and best ever.
Tate is also very active in his community, taking time to check on neighbors and help out where needed. He says he checks on his neighbor almost every day to be sure she if okay. Tate has worked with his father over the years and has mastered many aspects of the construction field. This knowledge will be an asset to him as he chooses a direction for his life.
Each chapter in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is allowed to honor one student each year from their community. We are so pleased to be able to honor Levi “Tate” Gosdin this year as the James Stewart Chapter Class of 2014 DAR Good Citizen Award winner.
We would like to thank Kelli Farrell, counselor at Heard High School, and Paige Harrod, Chairman of the James Stewart Chapter DAR Good Citizen Committee, for their help in making this award possible.
The student selected as the school’s DAR Good Citizen must have the following qualities:
Dependability (which includes truthfulness, loyalty, and punctuality);
Service (which includes cooperation, courtesy, and consideration of others);
Leadership (which includes personality, self-control, and ability to assume responsibility); and
Patriotism (which includes unselfish interest in family, school, community, and nation) to an outstanding degree.
