Today, I attended the Emmassee-Robert Grierson chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution luncheon. This chapter is in charge of the regional competition. Along with my parents, I enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the local country club where I read my essay and told the members about my future plans. I was also awarded a college scholarship! To my surprise, I am the first regional winner to have ever won the district award, as well.
I am so thankful that organizations such as DAR are taking the time to recognize students not only for their academic achievements, but for their achievements in the areas of patriotism, service, and leadership, as well. I will keep you all updated on the upcoming phases of competition!
All my love,
