McLean County High School Teacher and Student selected for 2013 National History Day Normandy Institute

McLean County High School social studies teacher Gary Morris and McLean County High School junior Abby Woosley were selected for the 2013 National History Day Albert H. Small Student-Teacher Normandy Institute. The institute selects fifteen student/teacher teams from across the United States to participate in a twelve day intensive study of World War II and D-Day. Participants prepare for the institute by reading eight required text and doing research on a fallen soldier, sailor or airmen from their state that participated in D-Day and is buried at the American Cemetery at Normandy. While at the institute, the participants hear lectures from renowned World War II scholars, give presentations on different aspects of D-Day, and walk the monuments and memorials in Washington, D.C. that are dedicated to the Second World War. Then the group will travel to Normandy, France, to walk the actual D-Day battlefield. Students will lay a wreath at the D-Day memorial in Normandy and will read eulogies about their fallen statesman. This year's institute will take place June 15th through 27th, 2013.
