The Fort Mims Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has announced the 2021-22 DAR Good Citizens from three area high schools – Jamison Kate Janes, Escambia Academy; JyKeria DeAsia Wilson, Escambia County High School; and MacKenzie Leigh Morrison, Flomaton High School.
These students were selected from the Senior Class of each school based on qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism to an outstanding degree.
The DAR Good Citizens were eligible to participate in the National DAR Scholarship Contest which included background information in school and community and an essay. All three DAR Good Citizens participated the scholarship competition. One Chapter winner’s package from each Chapter could be selected to advance to District to compete with entries from Baldwin and Mobile counties. The District winner would advance to State competition, and the State winner would go to National competition. This is the first step in a long process.
The Fort Mims Chapter NSDAR winner is MacKenzie Morrison, Flomaton High School.
Each recipient of the DAR Good Citizen Award is to be commended for excellence in school and community activities. Recognition of each winner will be given at Awards Day or Senior Recognition Day at the end of the school year.
