History Day a Success


Eighth grade students from Lourdes participated in the "District History Day" competition at Peru State College.  This year's them was "Leadership and Legacy in History."  The intentional selection of the theme for NHD is to provide an opportunity for students to push past the antiquated view of history as mere facts and dates and drill down into historical content to develop perspective and understanding.

The following students have qualified for the state competition and have the opportunity to compete at Nebraska History Day which will be held at Wesleyan University in Lincoln on April 11, 2015.  Mrs. Roxann Penfield is the Lourdes History Day Sponsor.
