Senior Hannah Perry was recognized as a Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Good Citizen.

The DAR Good Citizen Award was created in 1934 to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. The award recognized individuals who possess the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism in their homes, schools and communities. Students are selected by their teachers and peers because they demonstrate qualities to an outstanding degree.

Perry is a member of Bixby’s SPN, Dance Team, STUCO, National Honor Society and is the Class of 2016’s Secretary.  She serves as the Oklahoma Association of Student Council’s (OASC) District 7 President, and has been an active leader in the school, community and state.  She also is the National Honor Society Vice President, as well as the Dance Team Event Planner.  She balances all of the offices on top of a full course load with a few AP classes.

“It is such an honor to have been selected as Bixby’s representative.  My grandmother was once a part of the DAR program, and it is a great privilege to follow in her footsteps,” said Perry when asked about the award.

Once a student is chosen as the DAR Good Citizen, they are invited to participate in the scholarship portion of the program. This consists of a personal statement and an essay.
