Shelby’s David Barranco-Calixto wins DAR Good Citizen award.

Shelby High School senior David Barranco-Calixto was awarded the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen award Sunday, Nov. 3, during a reception honoring students chosen as their high school’s Good Citizen.

Harlie Belle Choponis from Hart High School and Haley Sue Adams from Walkerville High School were selected by their schools.

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution sponsors a Good Citizen Program that recognizes high school seniors from all over the country who have demonstrated dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. A Chapter of the DAR must sponsor a school in order for them to nominate a student as a Good Citizen. The Michigan Dunes Chapter of Pentwater sponsors 15 schools from across Western Michigan.
