DAR recognizes outstanding students
DAR American History Chairman Nancy Neal presents a certificate to Collin Davis, a junior at Camden High School, for his essay titled Joining Christopher Columbus on his Voyage to the New World.
The Daughters of the American Revolution, Hobkirk Hill Chapter, recognized several Kershaw County students during the chapter’s annual meeting in May. "Two of the guiding principles of the NSDAR are education and patriotism, and these worthy students exemplify these ideals on which the DAR was founded," Paddy Bell, past regent of the Hobkirk Hill Chapter said. The chapter presented a $1,000 scholarship to Lugoff Elgin High School student Amanda Kathleen Nesmith, who plans to study history at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, Ga. She was also recognized, along with Camden High School senior Derrick Marquis Engram, with the DAR Good Citizen Award, which recognizes exemplary leadership, academic, and patriotic achievement.
