National History Day Was a Success at SCHS

Congratulations to all of the students who worked so hard on their National History Day projects. This year's theme was Triumph and Tragedy, and the students did extensive research on a related historical topic, then created a display board, skit, website, paper, or video documentary.

Friday, February 15, was the presentation day for Sandy Creek and Whitewater High students, and the judges were very impressed with the students' hardwork and creativity.
