The Charity Stille Langstaff chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution recently held their Honors and Awards Tea to recognize students from the various schools in Callaway County.

The awards honored the fifth-grade students for Youth Citizenship, DAR Good Citizens in the high school level and American History Essay Contest winners for fifth through eighth grades from St. Peter's school.

The chapter also recognized Margot McMillen with a certificate and medal in honor of her being chosen as a DAR "Woman in American History" recipient. Margot has authored several books about various women who have been important influences in America's history. She recently spoke to the chapter about the ladies who organized a march on the Democratic Convention in 1916 held in St. Louis supporting women's suffrage.
