Rep. Ed Clere (R-New Albany) honored Vicky Zuverink, a national chairman of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), during session on Monday.
After becoming very involved with genealogy, Zuverink became a member of the organization while researching her own ancestry. She has been a dedicated member of DAR for more than 20 years. Zuverink has held positions at local, state and national levels.
Zuverink's past offices held include DAR State Regent, DAR National Executive Officer, DAR Librarian General and President of the Southern Indiana Genealogical Society.
"Vicky's dedication to community involvement and staying civically engaged is a reflection of what DAR represents," Rep. Clere said. "Vicky has held titles over the past 20 years which showcases her outstanding leadership ability. She has devoted tremendous amount of time and effort to promoting the ideals and mission of the DAR."
DAR is a membership organization of women who dedicate their time to promoting American history throughout the year by honoring historically significant people, places, dates and events. DAR chapters are involved in raising funds for local scholarships and educational awards within their communities.
DAR has chapters in all 50 states, as well as in the District of Columbia. Chapters outside of the United States include Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain and the United Kingdom.
