Daughters of the American Revolution honor local students

Local area high school students were honored by the Captain James Lawrence Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Senior girls who graduated with honors were invited by the DAR to an annual tea luncheon to celebrate their accomplishments at the Lawrence County Museum on May 5.

Each year the DAR invites top graduating senior girls to have lunch and listen to speakers and to enjoy a day that’s all about them.

“The DAR is the largest women’s organization in the county,” said local chapter member Donna Murdock. The group was founded in 1890.

Any woman 18 years old and older who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible to join.

High schools that were represented: Chesapeake, Dawson-Bryant, Fairland, Ironton, Rock Hill, St. Joseph, South Point and Symmes Valley.
