The Waw-wil-a-way Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution presented our Outstanding History Teacher Award to Mark Faust of Lynchburg-Clay High School at the April 2021 meeting.

Faust was recommended by one of our members who is familiar with his outstanding knowledge of American history. Some of his students, former students and principal also recommended him.

We presented Mr. Faust with a certificate, a monetary gift and some books of historical significance.

Last year, we nominated a history teacher from McClain. If anyone would like to nominate an Outstanding History Teacher next year, please contact a chapter member.

Also during the meeting, Donna Armstrong received her 25-year membership certificate in NSDAR for 2021. Others receiving 10-year certificates are Marcella Nicole Tarr McGinnis and Pamela Outt.

Thank-you notes were read for donations from the USO, Christian Waldschmidt Homestead at Camp Dennison and one of our members who is in a nursing home.

Elissa Zornes, Vice Regent, presented a short program on 18th-century gardens. Next month’s program will be on Hillsboro’s own “Rosie the Riveter.”
