Thanks to all the Quest students, parents, and both University of Hartford interns, John and Evan, History Day was a magnificent success. On so many levels, it was a group effort. Almost every student was given help from a classmate on proof reading, line rehearsals, costume advice, gluing, cutting, and technical, as well as, moral support. Competition is not the appropriate term for this experience. The risk taking and challenge necessary to take a topic related to leadership and legacy to a creative, finished product took a “village.” And now we will re-invigorate our efforts to help others with Type III projects, improve and prepare for state finals, and even launch new min-projects.
