The Richard Clinton Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was recently hosted by Bonnie Barr at the annual George Washington Tea.
Lynette Caison, chairwoman of the DAR Scholarship Committe, presented the program explaining the honor of being selected for the scholarship. One student, who has shown outstanding leadership qualities, represented each high school in Sampson County.
These selected students were given the opportunity to write an essay for the DAR competition that is judged for possibly moving on to district, state, and national levels. The high school seniors present at the meeting were Cashie Naylor, Midway; Elvie Sumner, Hobbton; Isai Cruz, Lakewood; and Aaron Viser, Clinton. Those who were unable to attend were Amy E. Rodriguez, Union and Spencer W. Cook, Harrrells.
Viser’s essay was selected as the winner and was entered in the district competition.
