Members of our chapter have been and remain active in our local school system, teaching at all levels from pre-school through college. We are proud of our five members who have earned their doctorate degrees. One of our members has served on the school board for Deer Creek Public Schools. Because of our commitment to education, our chapter supports Junior American Citizen Contests. Each year, we honor a high school senior from each school with the DAR Good Citizen Award.
Our chapter is also committed to the preservation of our local history. Several of our members are active volunteers for the Edmond Historical Society and have served on the board of directors. One has served as president, and another is the Collections Manager. We also have several members who are active in the Edmond Genealogical Society. Our chapter is proud to claim an author among our membership, who has written several books about historical figures instrumental in our state's history, notably Will Rogers and Wiley Post.
Each year, our chapter sponsors Constitution Week, requesting a proclamation by the mayors of Edmond and Guthrie, along with creating a display at the library and publishing newspaper articles in the Edmond Sun and Guthrie Leader. We have participated in "Bells Across America." Our membership makes it a point to fly the flag on each patriotic holiday, to help our communities be more aware of the need to practice our patriotism. Our chapter has presented an American flag to a community middle school.
Reminding our communities of the never-ending need for National Defense is important to our chapter as well. Each year, we honor a high school ROTC student during their annual awards banquet. Our chapter participates in a supply drive each October for the men and women who are being cared for at our local Veterans' Hospital. The Samuel King Chapter honors our American veterans and active service persons annually during our May meeting.
