MHS Grad Receives Good Citizen Scholarship Award for District, State and North Central Division

A Moline High School senior graduate exemplifies what it means to be a “Good Citizen”.  Savannah Grace Hampton is the North Central Division Recipient of the Good Citizens Scholarship contest held annually by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR).  Nationally there are eight Division winners selected  from the 6500 Good Citizens selected by their schools. Two of the Division winners are designated as National Good Citizens and are invited to attend the DAR Continental Congress in June in Washington D.C.

“Even though Savannah is not one of the National Scholarship Winners, we are extremely proud of her and excited for her” says Betty Hagberg, Good Citizens Committee Co-Chair of the Mary Little Deere-Fort Armstrong Chapter of the NSDAR. “We can’t recall a time when a Good Citizens Scholarship Winner from our Chapter advanced this far in the contest.” The qualities of a Good Citizen include dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.

Eight high schools in the Illinois Quad Cities are invited to select a senior as a Good Citizen. All receive a Good Citizens Certificate and Pin from the local Chapter. Each recipient has the option of entering the Scholarship portion of the contest which requires completion of an essay and an application including scholastic background, service contributions, recommendations, and how the applicant has met the criteria of Good Citizen.   The theme of this year’s essay was “How has America advanced the cause of freedom in the rest of the world?”

After Savannah was chosen as the winner from the local Chapter, she was placed into competition against entries from the other Chapters within District I. She was then chosen as the winner at the District, State and North Central Division level. Each stage of the contest includes a scholarship award.

Savannah is a 2018 graduate of Moline High School, representing one of the top ten in her class. She will be attending Princeton University majoring in International Relations. She received a $200,000 ROTC scholarship and will seek an active duty commission when she graduates.
