This year, over 400 high school seniors submitted essays for the DAR Good Citizen scholarship application. Among these, district DAR chapters identified one student as the person who best exemplifies dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism in their area. Jennifer was selected from Mt. Zion High School as the representative for the Stephen Decatur Chapter and attended the Illinois State DAR Conference, where she was named the statewide winner of the Good Citizen Award.
By all accounts, Jennifer demonstrates well the attributes of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. She is active in nearly every aspect of student life at Mt. Zion High School, where she is captain of all three of her varsity teams: cross-country, basketball, and track & field. She also serves as President of the National Honor Society and Treasurer of the Student Council, and even finds time to dedicate to volunteering with both Key Club and her church. She plans to study Speech, Language, & Hearing Sciences at the University of Arizona in the fall.
I am proud to recognize outstanding students in my district, like Jennifer, and I congratulate her on this prestigious honor.
