Giddings resident, Brandon Lippert, a senior at Smithville High School, received the Good Citizen Award and a $200 check on Saturday [February 16, 2019] from the Lost Pines Chapter of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution.


Lippert submitted a 550-word essay on the topic, “Our American Heritage and Our Responsibility for Preserving It.” He read his essay to those gathered on Saturday. It discussed, among other things, the importance of civic responsibility and the effect of climate change on his generation.
