(Franklin, GA) — Members of the James Stewart Chapter, NSDAR, attended the Awards Night Program at Heard County Middle School on Monday, April 22nd, to announce the 2018-19 recipient of the DAR Youth Citizenship Award.

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.

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

Those qualities are honor, service, courage, leadership and patriotism. In addition to these qualities, Simone is also active in the school band, choir, and many other activities.

She is excited about her upcoming transition to high school and the challenges it will present.

The objects of the NSDAR are Historic Preservation, Education and Patriotism. 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.

Please visit our national website at www.nsdar.org and review the numerous scholarship opportunities available to our high school students.

Many people do not know that Berry College is a DAR supported school.
