Jasmine Butler

The award is given by the Nathan Edson Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. This national program was started in 1934 and is now in its 89th year. Students are chosen for their qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism in their homes, schools and communities.

Once the student has been chosen as the Good Citizen for their school, they are also given the opportunity to write an essay for the scholarship portion of the program if they choose. This is a timed essay that must be proctored. The student is given a sealed envelope with a focus question inside. This is opened once the timing starts. They have two hours to complete the essay and can only use a dictionary while writing. Once the essays are finished and sent back to the Nathan Edson Chapter, the chapter then sends them on to independent judges outside the chapter.

Jasmine’s school activities include, Scholars Bowl; Student Council; FFA Treasurer; FBLA Treasurer; Volley Ball; Women in Business; Band; Art; Forensics; and National Honors Society.

She is involved in 4-H and has served as the 4-h Ambassador; helps with school organizations; and has been involved in Carol Singing at the nursing home and hospital. She lives in a small community and helps whenever there is a need.

She plans to attend Kansas State University and study Accounting and Animal Science.

Jasmine will be presented with a certificate, pin and monetary award from the Nathan Edson Chapter.
