WINTHROP — Lilly Marie Beauregard, daughter of Andrew Beauregard and Sarah Prescott, has been named the Samuel Grant-Mary Kelton Dummer Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution of Gardiner-Hallowell chapter winner of the DAR Good Citizen Program for the 2014-15 school year. She also has her essay and credentials entered in the state MSODAR Good Citizen scholarship contest, according to a news release from the chapter.

Beauregard has demonstrated academic excellence while participating in many extracurricular activities and actively volunteers in her community. She is ranked third academically in Winthrop High School’s senior class. She is Student Council president, a National Honor Society member, a member of concert band, varsity cross country captain, and has played varsity soccer, softball and basketball. In addition to receiving the William’s College Book Award and St. Michael’s College Book Award, she was honored as Mountain Valley Conference Academic All-Star and received the Trudy Hanson Manager of the Year Award for basketball. She works as a lifeguard at Winthrop Public Beach, volunteers for her church, helps coach for the youth basketball program and organized a food drive with Student Council for the local food pantry. Beauregard plans to attend either the University of New England or Husson University this fall and major in pharmacy.

DAR Good Citizens are honored for their dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. The selection begins at the local high schools where officials choose their candidate for the award. Only one senior may be honored each year as the school’s DAR Good Citizen. Each school’s DAR Good Citizen receives a DAR Good Citizen pin, certificate and wallet recognition card. This student is then eligible, if he or she wishes, to enter the DAR Good Citizen scholarship contest by writing an essay and personal statement.

Other area seniors selected by their schools this year include Eleanor Luken, Gardiner Area High School; Clio Barr, Hall-Dale High School; Angus Koller, Monmouth Academy; and Michaela Carney, Richmond High School.

The chapter will hold a tea honoring the students and their families at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 14, at the Mayflower Building, 28 Mayflower Road, Hallowell. Bauregard will read her winning essay. Rebecca McNaughton, chapter Regent, and Robin Reed, chapter chairwoman, will present certificates and pins to the students. In addition, Beauregard will also receive a cash award for her winning essay.
