The DAR Good Citizen program recognizes and rewards the qualities of good citizenship as manifested by dependability, service, leadership and patriotism to an outstanding degree. The program is open to members of the senior class enrolled in accredited private and public secondary schools in our service area of Muskegon and Ottawa counties. Each DAR good citizen is selected by the faculty of their school, as having demonstrated, in an outstanding manner, these qualities of outstanding citizenship. The DAR Good Citizens are invited to compete for Muskegon Chapter DAR Good Citizen scholarships, the winner of which will advance to State level DAR scholarship consideration.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism, preserve American history, and support better education for our nation’s children. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War. With more than 165,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide, DAR is one of the world’s largest and most active service organizations. The Muskegon Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution was the eighth chapter chartered in Michigan, beginning in November, 1898. We have operated continuously since, providing service to the community, serving our servicemen and veterans, preserving our history and genealogy, promoting patriotism, and investing in our future. Each year we award at least three scholarships to those competing in the DAR Good Citizen Scholarship program. We also award scholarships to qualified DAR descendants.
Membership in the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution is open to any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution.
