Abigail Wright Chamberlain Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, is pleased to grant several awards for Excellence in American History and to recognize the outstanding participation of Brevard Schools in activities on Veterans Day, November 11, 2008.

Brevard Schools is being commended for helping our students learn about their American historical heritage in this way.
Our Chapter invites Brevard Schools to participate in a number of activities related to American History each school year, including Outstanding American History Teacher, Good Citizen of each graduation senior class, American History Essay, Christopher Columbus Essay, Junior American Citizen art and written expression contests, and awards for JROTC senior cadets. Scholarships, including one at Brevard Community College (BCC) for educators and nursing. All offer opportunities for participants to progress to state and national level awards.
