JOINT BOARD MATTER
With Supervisor Cathy Hudgins

Recipients of DAR Good Citizen Awards
April 4, 2005


Mr. Chairman: It has come to my attention that two students in two Fairfax County schools in two magisterial districts have been awarded the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Award by its Fairfax County Chapter.

Mary Frances Gibson organized the Fairfax County Chapter, almost one hundred years ago, on October 14, 1905 at Vienna, Virginia. Named for the County of Fairfax, it was the second DAR chapter in northern Virginia. On March 4, 2005 - the Fairfax County Chapter of (DAR) gave its annual Good Citizen Awards to Byeri Kim of Oakton High School and to Lisa Marie Hughes of Madison High School. At the awards ceremony, the two students read their winning essays "Our American Heritage and Our Responsibility for Preserving It." Kim, who emigrated from Korea five years ago, emphasized on "Freedom It Not Free." Lisa, who talked about her immigrant grandparents, focused on "Traditions in America."

Lisa Marie Hughes and Byeri Kim exemplify the standards of excellence of students in our public schools. Supervisor Hudgins and I are very proud to share their accomplishments with you and commend the two students for their contributions to their schools, DAR and community. Therefore, I move that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs prepare certificates of recognition for the two awardees.
