KDS DAR School was honored to take part in the 132nd Continental Congress of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Washington, D.C. June 26 – July 2. KDS Executive Director Heather Green; Development Director Jason Hodges; Board Chair Melvina Phillips; KDS Alumna Caitlyn O’Neal; and student representatives Lauren Buchanan and Talan Gurley 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.”
Lauren and Talan had the privilege of speaking about KDS during the Education Luncheon on Friday, and Heather shared a brief overview of plans for the KDS 100th Anniversary celebration. KDS is one of five DAR Approved Schools to be featured during Continental Congress.
In addition to working daily at the school’s booth, the group had the pleasure of attending numerous events including Opening Night Ceremonies, the Alabama-Mississippi “Southern Sunrise” Breakfast, the Illinois Supper, the Texas Tea, the California Tea, the Units Overseas Luncheon, the Michigan Brunch, the Education Luncheon, and the Junior Membership Luncheon.
