(Franklin, GA) — The James Stewart Chapter National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution was pleased to present the 2018 DAR Good Citizen Award and a $150 scholarship to Eli Caldwell at the Heard County High School Awards Night.

Eli is the son of Tim and Robbie Caldwell of Bowdon, GA.

The student selected as the 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.

Eli’s peers, the students in the Heard High Class of 2018, selected him for this award. As a senior, Eli stayed busy taking classes at Heard High, serving as the Vice President of the senior class and serving as the Band Captain of the Marching Braves. He was also this year’s Homecoming King.

Eli’s favorite academic subject is math but his love is music. He has an ear for music and plays the piano, the guitar, the drums, the tuba, and any other instrument he decides to play.

He plans to be a music teacher and has been accepted to Point University where he will major in music education. He plans to get his masters from the University of West Georgia after graduating from Point. Eli looks forward to working with the youth of the future.

Each chapter in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is allowed to honor one student from each local high school each year.

We are so pleased to be able to honor a member of the Heard County High School’s senior class each year with the DAR Good Citizen Award. We would like to thank Mrs. Becky Roberts, counselor at Heard County High School, for her help in making this annual award possible.
