Lexi Thomas from Noxapater High School is the Winston County DAR Good Citizens Award Winner

The Nanih Waiya Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution sponsored the DAR Good Citizens Program locally. The DAR Good Citizens program and scholarship contest is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. This program honors an outstanding young senior who best demonstrates the qualities of a good citizen –Dependability, Service, Leadership, and Patriotism—and provides an opportunity for this student to compete with other seniors in the district in the scholarship portion of the program.

Lexi Thomas is this year’s scholarship winner. She will be awarded a $300 scholarship for being chosen the Winston County representative for this year. She along with one senior from each school in Winston County entered the Dar Good Citizens Scholarship contest. By entering the contest, each student wrote an essay that was judged for clarity of expression, originality, and historical accuracy. This year’s topic was “Our American Heritage and Our Responsibility for Preserving it” “What new challenges will America face as we move forward into the future?”

Lexi is now eligible for awards beyond the chapter level.
