Cedar Springs senior chosen for DAR program

Jenna Johnson receiving award

Senior Jenna Johnson, daughter of Kim and Dianne Johnson of Courtland Township, was chosen by her peers as this year’s “Good Citizen” at Cedar Springs High School. Jenna was the 2009 Red Flannel Queen, and has been active in band, drama, and many other activities at her school.
Since 1984, the Michigan Dunes Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution has hosted a reception honoring students chosen as their high school’s Good Citizen. The reception honoring all selected Good Citizens was held on Sunday afternoon, November 7.
Michigan Dunes sponsors 17 high schools for this award.  Schools who wish to participate select a student to be their DAR Good Citizen by the following criteria:  dependability, service, patriotism, and leadership.  The faculty of each school picks three students from the senior class who demonstrate good citizenship skills and then the senior class votes to see which of the three should be awarded the DAR Good Citizen’s Award.  The selected students can then participate in an essay contest for a $250 scholarship and entry into the state competition. This fall, 13 schools participated and the winner of this year’s essay contest was Lucas Hawley, from Pentwater High School.
This is a nationally recognized award as DAR chapters all over the nation honor Good Citizens.
