Saint Mary’s student receives Good Citizens Award


The St. Denis Chapter of The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution sponsors a Good Citizens Program. This program honors an outstanding young person in the senior class who demonstrates qualities of a good citizen, as well as provides an opportunity for this student to participate in the scholarship portion of the program.

This year’s winner of the Good Citizens Award is St. Mary’s student Abigail Gardner.
