The Missouri State Citizenship Award recipients were announced this week. The award recognizes Missouri High School students who have the qualities of great citizenship including knowledge of civics and government as well as involvement with their school and community, says Commissioner of Education, Chris Nicastro. One area recipient is Jessica Triplett of Meadville High School. Jessica and the other 15 students were presented with their plaques and certificates Tuesday at a Luncheon in Jefferson City recognizing them as members of the American BAR Association.
