Glenholme Student Honored with DAR Award

 

Each year, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) presents the Good Citizenship Award to youth who demonstrate exceptional character, dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. On May29, the Judea Chapter of DAR honored several students from area public, private, and parochial schools during a ceremony at the Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, Connecticut. One honoree was Maggie, a graduating senior of The Glenholme School.

In her two years at Glenholme, Maggie has grown into a mature young lady who displays strong character, takes great pride in her school, and is always willing to assist those around her. She is a caring and compassionate leader who consistently maintains a positive attitude and motivates others to do their best. This June, Maggie will graduate from Glenholme as a member of the Class of 2012.

Maggie’s involvement in Glenholme’s Community Service Program has been admirable. She has enthusiastically participated in numerous on campus efforts including the Cinco de Mayo fundraisers to support a local charity, campus clean ups, holiday food drives, and the recently successful breast cancer awareness and fundraising effort to benefit the Susan G. Komen for a Cure.

Maggie expressively noted, “I am very proud of my accomplishments at Glenholme. Since boarding at the school, my confidence has improved greatly – involvement in community service, the arts, and other activities, has really helped me come out of my shell. It was especially helpful when my classmates honored me with Prom Queen last year and the teachers recognized me with Student of the Month in January. Now this award confirms my effort as an individual and as a part of a community.”

The Glenholme School proudly congratulates Maggie on her many achievements. Her pleasant nature, solid work ethic, and respect and caring for others will continue to serve her well as she moves toward a successful future.
