Three Henderson County students received the DAR Good Citizens Award during a meeting of the Joseph McDowell DAR Chapter March 8 at The Cedars.

Each of the winning students receives $50 becomes eligible to compete for other awards including a $5,000 scholarship from the organization.
Esme Daughtridge Toshach of Henderson County Early College, Daphne Jasmine Hill of North Henderson High School and Brice Barrett Molton of Hendersonville High School won the award.
Each student participated in a two-part contest: describing how he/she has tried to manifest the qualities of a good citizen and completing an essay in a two-hour period under the supervision of their teacher.
"These outstanding high school seniors possess good citizenship qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism in their homes, schools and communities," the DAR said in a news release. "We are honored these fine young students and their parents are part of our community."
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism, preserve American history, and support better education for our nation's children. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War.
