Karen DiMenna, Good Citizen Committee Chairperson of the Abigail Phelps Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution, Inc. (DAR), announced that Kylie Coxon of Granby Memorial High School, is a recipient of the DAR Good Citizen Award.

Kylie was selected by her school’s guidance department based on the following qualifications: dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. Each of the winners from the four schools served by the DAR chapter have impressive lists of extensive school and community activities.

 Kylie is a high honors student, taking classes through AP, Honors, and UConn ECE courses. She is the president of the GMHS Chapter of DECA and has served as president of the LEO service club. She has earned Scholar Athlete designation in field hockey and tennis and has earned the Core Value award as well as achievement awards in Wellness, Child Development, Business, and World Language. Kylie has been named the recipient of the Principal’s Cup; the most prestigious award given at Granby Memorial High School. She has also been recognized at the State level for winning a $20,000 grant through a civic engagement initiative, Voices 4 Change.

Her courses this year include, among other classes, Honors Civics, UConn ECE Mandarin Chinese IV, Marketing/Management, Physics, Pre-Calculus, and Principles of Speech and Communication.

Her letter of recommendation written by GMHS Principal Mike Dunn sums it up best. “Kylie is a lovely young woman who has already been accepted to three of her four college choices. She is a strong student whose contributions to the school community have set her apart from her peers and earned her the respect and recognition of classmates and teachers alike.”

Kylie will attend the Maine Maritime Academy in Castine, Maine, in the fall.
