Rowton Receives DAR Youth Citizenship Medal

Maggie Rowton, Clark Elementary School 5th grader, has been awarded the Daughters of the American Revolution Youth Citizenship Medal for her demonstration of outstanding patriotism, honor, service, courage, and leadership.

Nominated by Clark Elementary, Rowton received a medal and certificate from Cindy Byrd, member of the Paducah chapter of the DAR, for her contributions to her school and community. She is the daughter of Lisa and David Rowton.

The DAR Youth Citizenship Medal was established to foster a greater appreciation of the qualities of American citizenship among schoolchildren. Schools and service organizations may nominate one student per grade in grades 5-11.
“Maggie is a friend to all and is always helpful in the classroom,” said Junior Beta Club sponsor Sharon Carvell. “She shows honor through her manners and demeanor, and she is respected by teachers and classmates alike. She works hard to make her school proud, and she will leave Clark Elementary a better place when she graduates and moves on to middle school.”
