Benjamin Kragness, son of Todd and Cassie Kragness of Colfax, was named a Good Citizen by the Eau Claire Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) at a presentation held at the Chippewa Valley Museum in Eau Claire on Monday, April 6, 2015. This award is given to a high school senior who is outstanding student academically, in extracurricular activities and active in the community.
