National History Day

On March 30th, Log College took 10 students to compete in the local Bucks and Montgomery National History Day competition. Students have been working on their projects for over five months. Projects consisted of "Historic Displays", Websites, video documentaries, and a "Live Performance". At the competition, Log had a group of three students who placed 1st in the "Live Performance" category. These three gentlemen will now be eligible to compete in the statewide competition. Log College is proud of all the students involved in the competition!

Brad Fox Fundraiser

On Friday June 14th, you have a great opportunity to support the Officer Brad Fox Foundation!
