GAINESVILLE - Eight Hall County students were selected as Good Citizen's by the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
The high school seniors entered an essay and personal statement after being nominated by their school as a potential Good Citizen. Only one student per school per year may be selected.
The Colonel William Candler chapter of the DAR chose the following students as Good Citizens:
Marisa Smith, Heritage Academy

Lindsey Ann Lester, Flowery Branch High School
Caitlin Lee Parsons, Johnson High School
Bethany Green, North Hall High School
