Congratulations to Hailey Rodgers- State winner in DAR contest

Congratulations to Hailey Rogers for being chosen as the regional Old 96 District Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution essay writing contest winner. Each year the Daughters of the American Revolution sponsor an essay contest. This year’s topic was “Celebrating a Century: America’s National Parks.” Students had to research the topic and write a 300-500 word essay with a bibliography and title page to compete in this contest. Hailey chose to write about the Great Smokey Mountains National Park.

In addition, Hailey was also chosen as the state winner for the 5th grade division! She and her family will be traveling to Columbia to attend the National Society DAR luncheon on March 25th to receive her prizes. Job well done, Hailey!
