Weston High School senior Lucky Donovan has added the title of Fay-Robinson Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Good Citizen to her long list of achievements.
She was chosen to receive the honor by Weston staff for having demonstrated the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.
Donovan received her Good Citizen pin and other mementos at the Fay-Robinson Chapter DAR Good Citizen Tea, held at the Reedsburg Country Club last month. She was honored along with one student each from high schools in Baraboo Hillsboro, Reedsburg, Sauk Prairie, and Wonewoc-Center.
Donovan was named Lucky because she is the youngest of 13 kids of veterinarian Joe (“Doc”) Donovan and his wife Gay. Lucky loves animals and has cats, two dogs, a horse and a hedgehog named Peanut, given to her by her boyfriend.
The Weston Class of 2015 Salutatorian excels in math and science and has been accepted at UW-La Crosse to major in microbiology. She hopes to one day find cures for diseases.
At Weston, her many roles include being Class Secretary and NHS President, being in FFA, band and choir, Outdoors Club, forensics, pep band and honors band, yearbook editor, High Quiz contestant, and she was the lead in the most recent school play as part of her involvement in Drama Club.
Throughout high school she has put in 160 hours of community service, including roadside clean-up, charity road race, helping with blood drives, Smile Train auctions, and singing at weddings and Christmas carols at nursing homes.
She also excels at art and recently was one of the top prize winners at the area high school art contest. She has her own photography business, LED Photography, which includes taking senior pictures and Homecoming photos, as well as commission photography and art work.
She’s “lucky” to find time to kick back and rest for a while!
