The Weatherford Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution presented its Good Citizen Award to graduating seniors from seven Parker County high schools, and awarded scholarships to two others at a reception on April 25 at North Side Baptist Church in Weatherford.
The recipients were Payne Wellman, Aledo; Addison Roberts, Brock; Conner Kirchhefer, Millsap; Addisyn Retz, Peaster; Roree Willis, Poolville; Todd Smith, Springtown; and Kaitlyn Pickett, Weatherford.
The DAR Good Citizen Award recognizes a graduating senior from each of the schools for their outstanding character, leadership, service, and patriotism demonstrated in their homes, schools and communities. The students were selected by their respective high schools for then honor.
Weatherford High School seniors Emily Farmer and Lauren Lee were presented scholarships from the organization. The scholarships are provided to students who plan to attend Weatherford College.
