Margaret Mae Schweitzer, a senior at Triton Central High School, is this year’s Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen Essay Contest winner for Shelby County. Schweitzer is the daughter of Alan and Susie Schweitzer of Fairland.
Mary Mott Green chapter of DAR sponsors the contest annually. Guidance department staff or teachers select one student as their school’s Good Citizen. Each Good Citizen participates in the contest by submitting requirements that include an essay written on a topic provided by the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution. A panel of judges then selects one of the Good Citizens to represent the county at the state competition level.
Judges review each Good Citizens’ personal accomplishments within school and the community during their academic careers, letters of reference, grade transcript, and future plans.
Representing their respective schools as DAR Good Citizens are:
Rylee Suzanne Kleine, a senior at Morristown Jr.-Sr. High School, daughter of Brandon and Rachel Kleine of Shelbyville.
Ethan Wendling, a senior at Southwestern High School, son of Albert and Tonya Wendling of Shelbyville.
Malea Nashel Terrell, a senior at Shelbyville High School, daughter of Samuel and Nicole Terrell, Shelbyville.
Caroline Rae Sheaffer, senior, Waldron Jr.-Sr. High School, daughter of Steve and Jill Sheaffer, Waldron.
