This year, for the first time, the Sycamore Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution sponsored the DAR Good Citizen program.
The program is intended to encourage and reward good citizenship among high school seniors. The five high schools in Adams County participated in this program and the  principals from all five high schools enthusiastically assisted in the Good Citizen Program.
The DAR believes good citizens have the qualities of dependability including truthfulness, service, leadership and patriotism. Recipients from each high school were honored and recognized Nov. 12 at the Sycamore Chapter, NSDAR Meeting held at the Adams County Heritage Center.
Recipients were awarded gold pins signifying dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.
The 2016 Recipients of the DAR Good Citizen Awards were: Olivia Jeaan Daniels (ACCS), Ryan Dryden (MHS), John Michael Farrell (NAHS), Katie Cora (PHS), and Shannon Runyan (WUHS).
