FARMINGTON — Colonial Daughters recently presented to Sarita Crandall, daughter of Bill and Janice Crandall, of Farmington, the Good Citizen Award at a Mt. Blue High School assembly.

The Colonial Daughters Chapter sponsors six area schools to recognize excellence in high school seniors. Each school’s faculty nominates several candidates for this honor each year.

These qualities are dependability (truthfulness, loyalty and punctuality): service (cooperation, courtesy, and consideration of others): leadership (personality, self-control, and ability to assume responsibility), patriotism (unselfish interest in family, school, community and union).

Crandall’s accomplishments are many which include high academic scores; strong leadership in service to her school and community; she has a strong work ethic and compassion for those who could use a hand. She works with WMCA and organizing the student council and NHS. She participates in sports as athlete and captain of hockey/basketball/track & field; president of student council her senior year; National Honor Society her junior year and voted treasurer her senior year. Crandall has volunteered at the REC Center for three years and was hired as assistant director to the playground as director of the Summer Sampler Program.
