(Franklin, GA) — The James Stewart Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution is pleased to announce that the DAR Youth Citizenship medal for the eighth grade at Heard County Middle School was presented to Noah Cantrell.

DAR Youth Citizenship medals are presented through the National Defense Committee of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR).

Awarding this medal is a wonderful way for us to recognize outstanding young people who exhibit the qualities of good citizenship in their homes, schools and communities.

The student selected for the school’s DAR Youth Citizenship Medal must display the following qualities: Honor – honesty, high principles, trustworthiness, loyalty, truthfulness, punctuality, moral strength and stability, cleanliness in mind and body; Service – cooperation, meritorious behavior bringing honor to school or community, kindliness, unselfishness, true Americanism, individual responsibility to God, Home, and Country; Courage – mental and physical determination to overcome obstacles; Leadership – personality, originality, ability to lead others, good sportsmanship, responsibility; and Patriotism –  fundamental Americanism.

Noah was selected by his teachers as the eighth grade student who best displays these qualities. Being selected for this award speaks highly to Noah’s character. It is also a testament to his parents who have instilled these traits to be a natural part of him. These are traits that will carry Noah far in life.

The DAR, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children.

Any woman 18 years or older who can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence is eligible to join the DAR.

The members of the James Stewart Chapter DAR are willing and ready to help you get started on the road to membership.

Most of DAR’s volunteer work is accomplished by the grassroots efforts of chapters on the local level which focus on the mission areas of DAR by encouraging members to become involved in these initiatives in their local communities.

For more than a century, the members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution have dedicated themselves to historical preservation, promotion of education, and encouragement of patriotic endeavors.

These goals are as relevant in today’s society as they were when the organization was founded in 1890. Learn what DAR does to promote these goals. Visit dar.org today.
