Caro’s essay on the connection between the First Amendment and personal freedom also earned him the $500 scholarship that comes with the title of Young Conservative Scholar.
“Daniel’s academic excellence, as well as his demonstrated commitment to helping those in need, exemplifies the leadership qualities we hope to foster with this scholarship,” said PCGOP Chairman Joseph Gullett.
“Daniel’s essay on the importance of the First Amendment as it relates to individual liberty showed us that he is a young man who has given thoughtful consideration to the meaning of the constitution in our daily live.”
Caro, who is headed to Georgia Tech this fall, has been a star student throughout his high school career. Caro lettered in high school tennis while also participating in organizations such as DECA, BETA Club and the Spanish Honor Society. In addition to this full schedule of school and extracurricular activities, Caro has remained actively involved in his church, including mission trips to Peru and Brazil.
The Young Conservative Scholar Award is an annual $500 scholarship presented by the Paulding County GOP. Paulding County high school seniors vie for the award through an essay contest designed to get our community’s young minds contemplating the role of the constitution in their daily lives.
This year’s Young Conservative Scholar Award was made possible through generous donations from Sheriff Gary Gulledge, Commission Chairman David Austin, Tax Commissioner Bill Watson, Post 1 Commissioner Larry Ragsdale, State House District 66 candidate Mickey Thompson, State House District 66 candidate Bob Snelling, State Senate District 31 candidate Bill Carruth, and Paulding County Republican Party members Jason Anavitarte, Albert and Lydia Hallmark and Jack and Robyn Howard. In addition, artist Angela Trenchik from Houston County donated a collection of GOP-themed accessories for ongoing sales that raised funds for the scholarship.
“The Young Conservative Scholar Award wouldn’t be possible without the incredible generosity of these elected officials and active party members,” said Gullett. “The commitment to education and community enrichment that these Republicans have shown is a great source of pride for the Paulding County GOP.”
