VUHS senior honored with DAR’s Good Citizen award

VERGENNES — Brandon Cousino was awarded this year’s Good Citizen by the Seth Warner – Rhoda Farrand Chapter of the DAR at its annual Good Citizen ceremony on March 11. The Good Citizens program encourages and rewards a high school senior who demonstrates the qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. Candidates for the reward are nominated by the faculty and then voted on by members of their VUHS senior class.
For the first time since they began presenting the Good Citizen award in 1945, the Seth Warner – Rhoda Farrand chapter has awarded their Good Citizen with a $250 scholarship, the Eleanor Pratt Memorial Scholarship. Eleanor was a 70 year member of the DAR, joining in 1946. She held many offices in the DAR. Recognizing a worthy high school student with the chapter’s Good Citizen Award was a priority for her. This monetary award was presented to Brandon in honor of Eleanor’s devotion to rewarding the outstanding qualities of our VUHS Good Citizen.
