Brakelle Westphal

Brakelle Westphal, daughter of Chris and Robyne Westphal, was named Good Citizen from Springfield High School.

Six area students were honored on Saturday, January 7, 2023, by the Fort William Bent Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Lamar at the Las Brisas Restaurant. They received recognition, a Good Citizen Pin and certificate along with a delicious breakfast buffet.

The DAR Good Citizens program and scholarship contest is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. The program is open to all senior class students enrolled in accredited public or private secondary schools that are in good standing with their State Boards of Education. The student selected as the school's DAR Good Citizen by the high school staff must have these qualities: Each one of these area students exemplify these qualities.

  •  Dependability (which includes truthfulness, loyalty, and punctuality);
  •  Service (which includes cooperation, courtesy, and consideration of others);
  •  Leadership (which includes personality, self-control, and ability to assume responsibility);
  •  Patriotism (which includes unselfish interest in family, school, community, and nation) to an outstanding degree.

The Daughters of the American Revolution also offers a scholarship contest along with the DAR Good Citizens program. This year’s winner, Brakelle Westphal, from our Chapter won $100 from the Fort William Bent Chapter. The winner’s application along with her winning
essay will advance to the state level where he or she could win $1500 and a special state DAR Good Citizens pin and certificate if chosen.

The national winner will be invited to Washington, D.C. to attend DAR Continental Congress and will be awarded a $10,000 scholarship, an inscribed silver bowl, and certificate. 

Congratulations Brakelle!
