History Day Winners

Sophomore Warren Jolicoeur won Best Overall Presentation and sophomore Miranda Seuell won Second Place Overall in the first S.C. Independent School Assoc. State History Day Competition held in Manning. The SCISA History Day, patterned after the National History Day Program, is designed to enhance reading comprehension as wells as the verbal, analytical, reasoning and research skills of students. The theme for this year’s project was Triumph & Tragedy in History and students addressed the topic’s significance and demonstrated an understanding of its proper historical context. The in-depth research, which included primary and secondary sources, was used for a process paper and annotated bibliography, exhibit, and oral presentation. Miranda and Warren are students in Mr. Tom O’Hare’s Advanced Placement U.S. History class.
