SALISBURY — The Elizabeth Maxwell Steele Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution has presented the 2019-2020 Good Citizen Award to high school seniors Dylan Shook, Claire Allen, Natalee Adkins, Anna Grace Woolly, Sarah Margaret Dyer and Ashley Lore.

These students have been chosen by their schools for exemplifying the qualities of a good citizen: dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.

Shook, the son of Amanda Jackson, is a December 2019 graduate of Henderson Independent. He plans to join the U.S. Marine Corps. Shook has wanted to be a Marine since he was a small child. His love of country has motivated him to prepare for this great adventure.

Allen, the daughter of Angela Allen, is a 2020 graduate of Rowan-Cabarrus Early College. She has not set her sight on a particular degree, only to complete her bachelor’s degree and possibly pursue a master’s degree. She earned a reputation as a hard working, motivated young woman. She has been active in student government and Early College Yearbook. She has also volunteered with the Rowan Museum, Rowan County Teen Court and Special Olympics.

Adkins, the granddaughter of John and Clara Talton, is a 2020 graduate of North Hills Christian School. Last year, she went on a mission trip to Bogota, Columbia. While there she felt the Lord speak to her heart, and she began to have a deeper interest in serving others. She  wants to become a nurse anesthetist and continue serving others through her faith, missionary work and by providing medical care around the globe.

Woolly, daughter of Rev. Rhodes and Krista Woolly, is a 2020 graduate of Salisbury High School. She has excelled academically and served as president of the National Honor Society and was a Junior Rotarian. She played varsity soccer, swimming and golf. She also has participated in mission trips, Crosby Scholars and the Racial Equity Institute.

Dyer, daughter of Kerry and Heather Dyer, is a 2020 graduate of East Rowan High School. She was the student body president and captain of the varsity soccer team.
