Sixth Grader, Lilli S. is an award-winning historian!!

Look what our very own sixth grader, Lilli S. has been up to!!
Last Friday Lilli attended the State Convention for the Tar Heal Junior Historians. She participated in many different History workshops thought the day. The day ended with the awards assembly where she was awarded 2nd place out of the whole State, in her division, for a scrapbook she entered in the Literary Division. The scrapbook was about her 4x Great Grandfather, who was a Union officer in the Civil War, and was captured and placed in the Salisbury Civil War Prison Camp. She had to research the prison camp and she did genealogy work to get information about her Great Grandfather. She was also awarded The Genealogy Award which was presented by the Friends of the Archives. Her Scrapbook is getting digitalized and will be on display at the North Carolina Museum of History for the next year.
