Annual DAR award
The Elizabeth Maxwell Steele Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution presented its annual Community Service Award at a meeting and luncheon at the Country Club of Salisbury on May 16, 2012. This year’s recipient was Anthony Johnson, Technology Facilitator and Band Director of the Mini Funk Factory Marching Band at Overton Elementary. The award is presented to a community volunteer who shows outstanding dedication to their cause. Mr. Johnson started a drum line at Overton as a way to reach at- risk youth. Interest among the entire student population grew into the first elementary school marching band in the state.
