Sierra Hansen is the Organizing Chapter Regent of the newly forming DAR chapter in Vail. She joined Daughters of the American Revolution, Tombstone Chapter, located in Sierra Vista, Arizona, in May of 2019. An Arizona native from Vail, she graduated from Cienega High School in 2016. Sierra is a graduate of Grand Canyon University, with a degree in History. She is a first year US History teacher at her alma mater, and is the head coach of the Cienega Swim Team.
As a member of DAR, Sierra served as the American History Essay Chairman, working with students 5th-12th grade to complete essays on events throughout American History. She also serves as the State Junior Vice President and State Junior Membership Vice Chair. Sierra loves volunteering with Adopt-A-Highway and several other service projects.
Sierra became interested in the DAR when she helped her mother research their family history. Now the student has become the master, so to speak. Being younger and more computer savvy, Sierra compliments her mother’s research abilities. She aspires to take the genealogy classes offered by DAR to further her knowledge in genealogy research. Her dream is to explore her lineage roots and visit the countries of her ancestors.
As of February 5, 2022, Sierra was appointed Organizing Chapter Regent of the newly forming chapter here in Vail, Arizona. She is looking forward to bringing others in the community to DAR and serving the Vail Community.
The DAR is a non-profit, non-political, worldwide service organization devoted to historic preservation, education, patriotism, and family history. Any woman 18 years or older who can prove lineal bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided the American Revolution is eligible to join. DAR and the Vail organizing team will help you with your genealogy research, if needed, and they have a database of research to assist in the application process.
