Congrats to Angelica L. (Grade 8) who won the Daughters of the American Revolution Youth Citizenship Medal for the 2015-2016 school year. This medal is presented to a student who exemplifies the qualities of honor, service, courage, leadership, and patriotism. Angelica has displayed many of these qualities as she has donated much of her time tutoring kids from other schools while she herself has maintained an excellent GPA.
