EAU CLAIRE — Drew Gibson, son of Gene and Connie Gibson of Colfax, was presented the Good Citizen Award from the Eau Claire Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) at a ceremony on Monday, April 5 at 7pm by Zoom meeting due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This award is given to a high school senior who excels academically, participates in extracurricular activities, and is active in the community.
Gibson’s most proud accomplishments include eight varsity sport letters, taking part in seven musicals, being President of the Senior class and Student Council, and representing Colfax at the Wisconsin Institute of Leadership Seminar in the Summer of 2019.
Gibson now plans on attending the University of Eau Claire in the fall to study Elementary Education.
Approximately two dozen high schools in the Chippewa Valley and beyond participate in the program and select a student to represent their schools. All the students are topnotch, and DAR members are proud to recognize these exceptional students.
The DAR, founded in 1890, is a volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to keeping America strong by promoting patriotism, preserving U.S. history, and supporting education programs. Today’s DAR members fund local scholarships, pioneer historic restorations, and lead volunteer projects in their communities.
