KDS Attends the 126th NSDAR Continental Congress
KDS DAR School was honored to take part in the 126 th Continental Congress of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Washington, D.C. June 26-July 3.  Executive Director Heather Green; Development Director Beth Cagle; KDS staff member April Pendergrass; Board Chairman Cheryl Harrison; and student representatives Taylor Corbin and Charles Montgomery enjoyed a busy week of meeting with Daughters from across the country and throughout the world to share with them the story of KDS, the "Gem of Gunter Mountain."  

NSDAR Provides Funding
for Needed Projects

 
KDS was pleased to once again receive support through a generous contribution by the Friends of DAR Schools Fund during the Friday afternoon DAR School Luncheon.  National School Chairman Peggy Troxell made the presentation following the KDS School report. 
 








Junior Members Chart
a Course for Success

The Junior Membership Committee of the DAR has for more than 75 years raised money for the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund through the sales of nationally approved Junior products at the state and national levels as well as the contributions of chapters for Achievement Award credit.  Those funds are awarded to the DAR Schools annually for projects which directly benefit children.  







Fun in DC

 
Free time is always scarce during Continental Congress, but the KDS delegation did have the opportunity to visit several of our country's top attractions including the U.S. Capitol; the National Gallery of Art; the International Spy Museum; and the numerous memorials and monuments along the National Mall.
