The award ceremony, attended by chapter members, students, families, school administrators and teachers, took place on April 4 at the Huntington Congregational Church Meeting Hall in Shelton.

Chapter Regent Patricia King said she was honored to recognize these students through the DAR Good Citizen program. She noted that the DAR Good Citizens is a wonderful way to recognize outstanding young people who exhibit the qualities of good citizenship in their homes, schools, and communities. Committee Chair Betsy Grant presented the awards saying “Each of our DAR Good Citizens are extremely conscientious in school activities and in giving back to their communities.
