MEEKER | Seventeen students presenting nine History Day subjects from Barone Middle School (BMS) competed in the regional show-offs in Grand Junction last Saturday. Four of them placed first in their category and will be going to the state competition in early May.
The first place finishers were Morgan Kehrig and Mikynna Molandes with a group website on Simone Liebster; Mason Holliday, Ryan Phelan and Braydon Garcia with a group performance on the Newsboys Strike of 1899; Sierra Gomez with an individual website on the Nat Turner Rebellion; and Chayton Bumguardner with an individual exhibit on the Stonewall Riots.
History Day sponsor, BMS social studies teacher Kris Casey, reported, “I am very proud of all the kids that competed, those that are heading to state and those that aren’t. It was a great experience for all of them.”
The other 10 students who competed in Grand Junction were Carter Strate, Cooper Main, Spud White, Brandon Blaisdell, Colby Clatterbaugh, Kyle Wangnild, Junior Gaeta, Dax Sheridan, Bradey Potetz, and Abbigail Moon.
