The Society Honors Bedford High School National History Day Winners

As part of our continuing mission to promote the study of history, again this year we have opened our Historical Society’s program year by honoring  Bedford High School’s National History Day prize winners. This year’s winning group produced a documentary, Zora Neale Hurston: Taking a Stand for a Holistic Portrayal of Black Women & Black Culture in Literature, and earned a third-place medal in the national competition, whose theme this year was Taking a Stand in History.

This past year’s team of Lexia Ciccone, Cordelia Houck, Natalie Knight, and Georgia Michelman, shown here along with their advisors, history teachers James Sunderland and Christine Butler and Society President Don Corey, attended the competition at the University of Maryland, and competed against an international field.
