From May 14 to May 18, History Teacher John Duckhorn’s Honors US History classes presented their Family and History Projects.

83 students over three periods each completed a project, using two weeks to conduct interviews with family members, draw up family trees, and write a couple short papers on their own life experience.

Students shared familial stories, facts of their ancestry, and precious heirlooms passed down from generation to generation.

“I really enjoyed this year’s projects,” says Duckhorn, “Everyone has taken such a great interest in both their own and other people’s stories.”

The Family and History Project was a grand success according to Duckhorn, and already plans to have next year’s US History students to complete one.
