Five students from area high schools were recently honored with Good Citizen Awards from the Don Jose Verdugo Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution.
A luncheon celebrating the recipients was held at a Pasadena restaurant. Barbara Rogers, Good Citizen chairman, introduced each of the recipients, their parents and school counselors. Accepting the prestigious awards were Gloria Han, daughter of Paul and So Han, who attends Crescenta Valley High School; Jenna Gulick, daughter of Belen and Douglas Gulick, who is a senior at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy; Carly Moore, daughter of Daniel and Susan Moore, who attends La Cañada High School; Jenna El-Fakih, daughter of Hamal and Mary El-Fakih, who attends Anderson W. Clark Magnet High School; and Jenna Galper, daughter of Gayle Penrod and Michael Galper, who is a senior at Flintridge Preparatory School.
Each of the young women spoke about their plans for the future and what colleges they want to attend.
The award is given each year to deserving students in the La Cañada Flintridge area. The local DAR chapter draws its membership from women in La Cañada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Pasadena, Glendale, and Burbank.
