Bellport High School senior Catherine Masem was selected as the second-place winner of the DAR Good Citizen Award for the Colonel Josiah Smith Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was presented with her award on May 4 at a ceremony at the Longwood Estate.

Masem was recognized with this honor for being an outstanding young person in the Class of 2024. She consistently demonstrates the qualities of good citizenship — dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.

Masem is an officer of the National Honor Society and Science Bowl, as well as a member of the varsity golf team. She was selected for the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists at Harvard University and was awarded the South Country Education Foundation’s grant to study at Stony Brook University’s Science and Research Awareness Series program this summer. She is a highly motivated student who is graduating a year early, and she plans to study biology on a pre-medical track at the college level.
