REGION – The Old Concord Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution recently awarded Marlborough’s Sarah McKinnon and Hudson’s Kelsey True with the Good Citizen Award at their annual awards meeting.
McKinnon, a senior at Marlborough High School, volunteers at Marlborough’s Holy Trinity Anglican Church soup kitchen while True, the Student Council Vice President at Assabet Valley Regional High School, also runs food drives for local shelters.
A press release from the Daughters of the American Revolution said that the two were recognized because of their “dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism in the surrounding community.”
The press release added that McKinnon, a singer, made the soprano role for the 2020 Central District Senior Festival and wants to go to nursing school to become a physician assistant. True is in Assabet Valley’s Visual Arts program. She is also an athlete.
The Good Citizen Award can only be given to one high school senior per school.
