Townley and Frost Honored by Daughters of the American Revolution
Two Prince Avenue Christian School students were recently honored at the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Apalachee Chapter Awards Luncheon.
Eighth-grade student Grace Townley was selected as the winner of the DAR American History Essay Contest. Grace responded to the prompt “The Women's Suffrage Campaign” and was honored as the PACS school winner and the 8th grade DAR Apalachee Chapter Winner. Her essay will move forward to be judged at the district level.
The DAR American History Essay is 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 her achievements, Grace was presented with a certificate, lapel pin, and a cash prize.
Also honored at the luncheon was PACS senior Abby Frost. Abby 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.
