Franklin Towne Charter High School announced that six of its 11th-grade students are recent recipients of the Union League’s Good Citizen Award. The students were also invited to participate in the accompanying annual Good Citizen Day activities.

Good Citizen Day started in 1946 to recognize high school students who demonstrate good citizenship, and encourage them to stay actively engaged in their communities. Youth-serving organizations nominate students for the Good Citizenship Award and to attend Good Citizen Day. Each year, nearly 300 students gather for the day to meet one another, discuss the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, debate issues, and are honored and recognized as “good citizens.”

Those students and nominating parties are Jason Gillich (First Tee of Philadelphia), Nina Loh (Ed Snider Youth Hockey), James McFadden (Boy Scouts Troop 290), Disaya Pinkney (Girl’s Inc. of Greater Philadelphia & Southern New Jersey), Jercell Sandiford (The Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia) and Nyel-Zamier Waters (The Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia). ••
