Another Successful Liberal Arts Tournament Day
Congratulations to Bev Gentry, event coordinator for the History Department, and to all of the students who participated in and won awards at the 2009 Liberal Arts Tournament Day on April 16, 2009. Students from area high schools, including Randolph, Grissom, Ardmore, Johnson, Catholic, Covenant Christian Academy, Buckhorn, Athens, and Brewer/Falkville, traveled to campus to compete in the categories of US History, World History, Art, and Government. In addition to participating in the competition, visiting high school students found out information about attending UAHuntsville and enjoyed a good lunch.
Total competitors in the two History categories were 130 students. Stephen Thrasher of Grissom High won the US History award and Marshall Moore of Grissom High won the World History award.
We were delighted to welcome so many high school students to UAHuntsville. Special thanks to Bev Gentry for all the hard work that made this successful event possible!
