Enumclaw High's Sara Mongrain National Society Daughters of the American Revolution scholarship winner

Enumclaw High's Sara Mongrain was the winner in a regional scholarship contest, as announced by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.

Competing were students from the Enumclaw, Auburn, Kent and Federal school districts.

Mongrain was selected by the Enumclaw High School Staff as the school's DAR Good Citizen. Only one student per year may be honored. The DAR Good Citizen program and scholarship contest is intended to reward the qualities of good citizenship. The student selected must have qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. Grade transcripts are also sent; Mongrain has maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout high school.

Each school's DAR Good Citizen is eligible to enter the scholarship contest by completing an essay administered under the supervision of a faculty member at one sitting, within a two-hour limit and without assistance or reference materials. Mongrain's qualifications and essay have now advanced to the state level of judging.
