AUBURN — The Mary Dillingham Chapter of the Lewiston/Auburn Daughters of the American Revolution honored outstanding area high school seniors April 9 at the Auburn Methodist Church.

The students are winners of the annual DAR Good Citizenship Medal Award.

They were chosen by their respective schools for outstanding citizenship, honesty, courage, service, leadership and patriotism.
