Two students from Nash Central High School have garnered recognition for their accomplishments at both the Chapter and State levels from the Sons of the American Revolution. Madeline Hart, named the winner for her Knight Essay on Joseph Warren at the Halifax Resolves Chapter, secured third place in the statewide competition. Jon Ayden Horne received accolades for his deep passion for American History and current events, earning him the Outstanding Citizenship Award from the Halifax Resolves Chapter.

Hart, a junior at NCHS, secured third place in the State SAR Knight Essay competition with her essay titled “Joseph Warren: Activist Without Acclaim.” For her achievement, she was awarded a certificate and a $100 check.

Horne, a senior at NCHS and a recent recipient of the Morehead-Caine Scholarship, emerged as the Nash County winner of the Outstanding Citizenship Award.  The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution honors our Revolutionary War patriot ancestors by promoting patriotism, serving our communities, and educating and inspiring future generations about the founding principles of our Country.  The Outstanding Citizenship Award is presented to a senior in the 2023-2024 class who has excelled in US History and has exhibited high ideals of character and citizenship.

Horne possesses an exceptional grasp of American History and his depth of knowledge extends beyond mere facts; he skillfully draws connections across different eras, revealing a comprehensive understanding of the nation’s past. Moreover, he demonstrates a remarkable political acumen, showing an astute awareness of current affairs and the historical events shaping America’s trajectory. This combination of historical insight and contemporary relevance underscores their deserving recognition for this prestigious award.
