FARMINGTON — Colonial Daughters Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, has announced that seven Franklin and Oxford county high school seniors have been chosen as DAR Good Citizens by their schools.

Justin William Richards, son of Darlene and William Richards of Dixfield, is the DAR Good Citizen for Dirigo High School, and Marlee Irma Dubord, daughter of Mavis and Robert Dubord of Jay, is the Good Citizen for Jay High School.

Holden Richard Parker, son of Julia and Richard Parker Jr. of Livermore, has been named the Good Citizen for Livermore Falls High School, and William M. London, son of Danielle and Barry London of Kingfield, is the Good Citizen for Mt. Abram Regional High School.

Ethan E. Howatt, son of Marie and Jeff Howatt of Farmington, has been chosen the Good Citizen for Mt. Blue High School; Megean Bourgeois, daughter of Christopher Bourgeois of Rumford, is the Good Citizen for Mountain Valley High School; and Allison Hammond, daughter of Reginald Hammond and Janet Waugaman of Rangeley, has been named the Good Citizen for Rangeley Lakes Regional School.

Good Citizen Committee Chairwoman Deborah J Judkins of Upton said Colonial Daughters Chapter sponsors these schools to recognize excellence in high school seniors. Each school’s faculty nominates several candidates for the honor.

The person who is chosen must have demonstrated each of the qualities as defined by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution to an outstanding degree.

The qualities are dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. The student who most exemplifies the four qualities is chosen by either vote of the senior class or vote of the faculty and administrators.

Colonial Daughters officers will attend assemblies at each school to present the certificates and pins to the Good Citizens. The parents will be invited to help with the presentations.

Jay High School’s presentation was Feb. 3; Dirigo High School, Friday, Feb. 11; Livermore Falls and Mt Blue High Schools, Wednesday, Feb. 16; Rangeley Lakes, Monday, Feb. 28; and Mountain Valley, Tuesday, March 22. Mt. Abrams Regional High School has not scheduled an assembly yet.
