PACS Students Honored By Daughters of the American Revolution

Three Prince Avenue Christian School students were recently honored at the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Apalachee Chapter Awards Luncheon. 

Eighth-grade student Elizabeth Ann Jackson was selected as the winner of the DAR American History Essay Contest. Elizabeth responded to the prompt “World War I: Remembering the War to End All Wars” and was honored as the PACS school winner, the DAR Apalachee Chapter Winner, and the DAR District winner.  Her essay will move forward to be judged at the state level. 

PACS junior Abby Frost was selected as the winner of the DAR Christopher Columbus Essay Contest.  Abby responded to the prompt “Advantages and Disadvantages of Working Relationships Between Foreign Parties” and was honored as the PACS school winner, the DAR Apalachee Chapter Winner and the DAR District winner.  Her essay will also move forward to be judged at the state level.

The DAR American History Essay and Christopher Columbus Essay Contests are sponsored each year as a way to promote patriotism and awareness of American History topics beneficial to the current generation.  Students voluntarily submit essays outside of their regular classroom assignments. In recognition of their achievements, Elizabeth Ann and Abby were presented with a certificate, lapel pin, and a cash prize. 

Also honored at the luncheon was PACS senior Emma Taylor.  Emma was nominated by PACS teachers for this special honor and received the Good Citizen Award in response to her outstanding character and commitment to citizenship both within Prince Avenue as well as in the community. 

These PACS students enjoyed a special luncheon with the DAR Apalachee Chapter and were an excellent representation of Prince Avenue middle and high schools.
