Hiltoppers know their history

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

History holds some fascinating stories and a group of Los Alamos High School students are sharing a few of these tales, from a group of poverty-stricken Pennsylvania miners with criminal intentions to two estranged countries opening up to diplomatic relations through a game of ping-pong.

These students not only caught people’s attention to these moments in history, but they also won awards.

Shannon Burns, Ellen Rabin and Hannah DeNevers all won first place in the New Mexico History Day State Competition, held April 25. As a result, Burns, Rabin and DeNevers, and their stories will travel to the National History Day competition, which will be held June 15-19 at the University of Maryland.

At the state level, Burns earned first place in the senior individual documentary while Rabin and DeNevers teamed up to win first place in the senior group exhibit.

The theme of both competitions is “conflict and compromise.”

Burns presented this theme through a documentary, titled, “Molly’s Children: American Irish Mining Conflict.”
