The Louisa St. Clair Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution awarded bronze medals to members of the Detroit Public Schools Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps cadets April 21 at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial.

These awards for outstanding ability and achievement have been given out by the DAR since 1967. One student from each graduating class of a participating program is selected by professors of military science.

Recipients must have demonstrated loyalty and patriotism, earned a record of military and scholastic achievement during their participation in a JROTC program and be in the upper 25 percent of their classes in both the military and academic subjects.
