The Brigadier General Edward Buckley Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution recently announced that Abbi Farr, Celeste High School senior, had been chosen for the recipient of the Good Citizen Award. High school students from Boles, Caddo Mills, Celeste, Greenville, and Wolfe City all competed in the contest and Abbi was chosen the winner! Judges considered grades, extracurricular activities, community service, leadership, recommendation letters, and an essay on our American heritage (which had to be written during a two-hour time limit with no outside resources). Abbi will receive a college scholarship in April 2017 for the Good Citizen Award, and her application will now be forwarded on to the state level contest.
