JAY — At a Spruce Mountain High School assembly held recently, senior Camryn D. Berry was presented with the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen Award. Berry is the daughter of Tammy and Andrew Berry of Jay.

Melanie Farmer, regent of the Colonial Daughters Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Farmington, and Deborah Judkins, also a member of the chapter, presented the award. 

Berry received a Good Citizen pin and a certificate authorized and signed by the National Society’s President General Ann Turner Dillon and Maine State Society’s Regent Elizabeth Blake Hotchkiss.

The Colonial Daughters Chapter sponsors six area schools to recognize excellence in high school seniors. Each school’s faculty nominates several candidates for this honor each year. The person chosen to receive the honor must have demonstrated each of the qualities as defined by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution to an outstanding degree.

These qualities are:

• Dependability, embodied by truthfulness, loyalty and punctuality;


• Service, marked by cooperation, courtesy and consideration of others;

• Leadership, demonstrated by personality, self-control and ability to assume responsibility; and

• Patriotism, shown by unselfish interest in family, school, community and union.

During her years at Spruce Mountain High School, Berry has achieved high honors in her academic classes and has also been recognized for her outstanding qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism to her home, school and community. Berry aspires to be a biomedical engineer who wishes to spend her time helping and serving others.

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.
