Kaile Pollard Wins DAR Good Citizen Award

Senior Kaile Pollard was presented with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Good Citizen Award for Badger High School, In addition, she was chosen as the chapter essay contest winner. The DAR Good Citizen program is a way to recognize outstanding young people who exhibit the qualities of good citizenship in their homes, schools, and communities.

 

According to Judy Bartlett, Chairman of the Good Citizenship program for the Samuel Phoenix Chapter of the DAR, each high school that participates selects a student based on the following qualities: dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism.

 

Pollard was nominated by her guidance counselor Kate Wolk. She and all of the Badger nominees completed an application, gathered letters of recommendation, and wrote an essay to a prompt “Our American Heritage and Our Responsibility in Preserving It.”

 

“Kalie came forward as the best Badger candidate,” according to Gen Reed, Badger Counselor in charge of selecting the local candidate. Her application and essay were then forwarded to the DAR.                                                                       

 

In presenting the award, Bartlett noted Pollard’s involvement in her church, Badger’s National Honor Society Backpack event, and Special Olympics. She also noted her knowledge of America’s history and gratitude to those who have served and sacrificed their lives as factors in her selection.

 

Good citizenship is important to me because it is what makes our community and lives meaningful,” Kaile said. “By doing my part in my community, I can help others thrive.”

 

Next year, Pollard will be attending Wheaton College in Illinois where she will major in political science. “I plan to continue to be a good citizen as I progress throughout life by staying involved. I plan to look for various volunteer opportunities in college. Also, I would like to look for others ways to stay involved with Special Olympics programs in the future,” she said.

 

On behalf of the DAR chapter, Bartlett presented Pollard with a pin, wallet recognition card, and a certificate. In addition, she was given a gift card for winning the essay contest.
