Kokomo High School student Fletcher Miller has been named the recipient of the General James Cox chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution’s Good Citizen scholarship.
Miller, a senior at KHS, is the son of Mike and Peggi Miller. He plans to attend Indiana University and would like to work in the physical therapy field.
The Good Citizen program stresses the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism among high school seniors. Schools are invited to nominate a good citizen, and the DAR then conducts a contest to select a winner. Students’ high school activities, community service, future plans, extracurricular activities and academic achievement are taken into account, and they also must write an essay.
Other DAR good citizens from Howard County are:
• Eastern High School – Lewis Duke, son of Robert and Teri Duke;
• Northwestern High School – Brandi Jo Harmon, daughter of Shellee Hamilton and Brian and Neal Harmon and Lori;
• Western High School – Mark Bewley, son of Gregory and Kristine Bewley; and
• Kokomo High School – Katy Alexandre Volakis, daughter of Ingrid and Anthony Volakis.
The good citizens were honored at a reception in February. Each student received a certificate, pin and monetary award.
