TC's Schweitzer is top DAR Good Citizen Essay Contest winner

Hallie Jo Schweitzer, a senior at Triton Central High School, is this academic year’s Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen Essay Contest winner for Shelby County.

The Mary Mott Greene 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.

Schweitzer is the daughter of Alan and Susan Schweitzer of Shelbyville.

Representing their respective schools as DAR Good Citizens are:



Simon Klinger, a senior at Morristown High School, son of Lisa Klinger of Morristown.



Jonah Patrick DeArmitt, a senior at Southwestern High School, son of Mike and Jennifer DeArmitt of Shelbyville.



Josephine Lynn-Marie Larrison, a senior at Waldron High School, daughter of Isaac and Elissa Larrison, St. Paul.
