National Finalist

Khang T. and Gabriella B., both sixth graders, competed on April 13, 2019 at the State National History Day competition, held at LaGrange College.

Both students worked hard on their projects over several months and on Saturday they represented Summerour Middle School very well at the competition.   We are very proud of their accomplishments!

We are delighted to share that Gabriella's research paper, "The Devil Made Me Do It:  The Salem Witch Trials," won SECOND PLACE in the Junior Division, Research Paper category.   This means she has made it to the NATIONAL LEVEL of National History Day competition and she will represent Georgia AND Summerour Middle School at the National competition at the University of Maryland in June.

After her award was announced, Ms. Laura McCarty, President - Georgia Humanities, congratulated Gaby and exclaimed to us "this was an EXCELLENT paper!"
