The Framingham chapter of the Daughters of the Revolution has announced this year's winners of the Good Citizens Award, a nationwide program that gives recognition to local high school seniors and provides them the opportunity to apply for a college scholarship.
Now in its 80th year, the program aims to recognize and reward the qualities of good citizenship among senior high school students. The award is granted to one senior in each community within the local DARís district.
Candidates chosen have demonstrated outstanding character and citizenship - defined by the DAR as dependability, service, leadership and patriotism - to their school, community, and country, according to the organization.
Each "Good Citizen" was selected by the respective faculty, staff, and student government.
The following high school seniors have been selected for the award:
- Ashland: John Joyce
- Bellingham: Shane Cardinal
- Holliston: Amber Ahronian
- Hopedale: Kelsi McDougle
- Hopkinton: Brian James Doyle
- Milford: Carolyn Chaplin
Framingham did not participate in the award this year.
