Micajah Pettaway Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution honored the winners of the DAR Youth Citizenship Medal during its May meeting.
The fifth-grade winners of the Youth Citizenship Medal for 2017-18 are Destiny Wallace, Deniyiah Powell, Chloe Harris, Ashley Durant, Yordi Perez-Velazquez, Elizabeth Barnhill and Makhai Jones.
The DAR Youth Citizenship Medal was established to foster among school children a greater appreciation of the qualities of citizenship Americans must possess if our country is to remain sovereign and independent.
This medal is presented to a student who exemplifies the qualities of honor, service, courage, leadership and patriotism.
Winners were awarded a certificate as well as the Youth Citizenship Medal. Proud parents were given the honor of pinning the medals on their child.
