I’ve been a witness to her tenacity and compassion since ninth-grade. It continues to grow as she matures.”

Each year, an outstanding senior is chosen from participating high schools. The person who best demonstrates the qualities of a good citizen by dependability, service, leadership and patriotism in the home, school, church and community is chosen for the good citizen award.
