St. Catherine of Siena Parish School students Trey Taylor and Isabella Ciraulo received medals and certificates for excellence in American history by the Patience Wright Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution on Wednesday, June 15.

Gloria Padach discussed the meaning of history with teacher Mike Letourneau’s students and encouraged them to get started on their own family genealogy by writing down information from their grandparents and parents.

The DAR American History Awards recognize fifth grade students, chosen by their teachers, who have made an outstanding effort in social studies and American history throughout the year. The winning students received a bronze medal and an engraved certificate recognizing their outstanding work.

Laguna’s chapter, founded in November of 1839, is the second oldest DAR chapter in Orange County and is named after Patience Wright, a hero of the American Revolution.
