||The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) has chosen to honor author Kathleen Ernst for "outstanding achievement in her artistic field" with their American Heritage Women in the Arts Recognition Award for Literature.
Kathleen was nominated for this national award by the Wisconsin Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (WSDAR). State Regent Brenda T. Majewski explained why they proposed her for this recognition.
"Education, historic preservation, and patriotism are the missions of the DAR. Literacy, American history, and classroom participation fall under our service projects. [Kathleen's] books fall easily into these categories, particularly the research that goes into the back stories of the Chloe Ellefson series."
National DAR President General Denise Doring VanBuren will present the award to Kathleen at an afternoon reception in her honor, to be held April 16, 2020, during the WSDAR Conference at the Hyatt Regency in Green Bay, WI.
The DAR was founded in 1890 and has 185,000 members, including 1,500 in Wisconsin. This non-profit, non-political, volunteer women's service organization is dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and educating America's children.
