Dan McCarty Students Win First Place at 2015 District History Fair Competition

The top prize in the Group Website category went to Dan McCarty students, Tiferne Jean, Jr., Jesus Hurtado, and Hakeem Jean-Baptiste for their excellent interpretation of George Washington’s “Leadership and Legacy,” hence, this year’s National History Day (NHD) theme.   NHD makes history come alive for students by engaging them in the discovery of the historical, cultural, and social experiences of the past. The students tackled the task of selecting a historical figure that demonstrated great leadership and left a profound legacy. As a group they selected one of our Founding Fathers and the first President our country, George Washington.

This was an unforgettable experience for the young men and a remarkable accomplishment. The teachers and staff at Dan McCarty are overwhelmed with pride and contentment for this outstanding achievement for the three Mighty Eagles. Best wishes to the young men as they head to Tallahassee, Florida to  the State History Fair from May 3-5, 2015 to compete for another big win.HF2015Winners
