By Campion Academy News – Loveland, Colorado…Samantha Hodges, Campion senior and frequent contributor to NewsNuggets, was recognized with a Good Citizen Award by The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was nominated by Campion’s staff for demonstrating the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.

“It was a honor to be nominated for this award, and a joy to earn the title of the Good Citizen Award as well as represent Campion Academy. It was a great opportunity to write an essay about our country and its heritage. It is my hope to inspire others through my writing and everyday actions by being the best person I can be,” Samantha Hodges said.

The Namaqua Chapter has hosted an annual Student Recognition and Patriotic Tea for 105 years, which Samantha attended online this year. Each of the selected winners from seven local high schools read a personal essay on the topic, “Our American Heritage and Our responsibility to Preserve it.”

The Thomson Valley School District Superintendent, county commissioner, and Loveland mayor were present to honor the nominees.
