Stevensville High School will have three representatives attend The Presidential Academy for American History and Civics and companion experience The Congressional Academy for American History and Civics in Maryland, July 7-20.
Juniors Anya Murphy and Alexsandra Morawic along with civics educator Wes Wells and have been selected to attend the two week program at Goucher College Campus in Baltimore, Maryland, where teachers and students will work together to learn about civics, history, the constitution and produce activities for their schools.
“It is a collaborative model for teachers and students to work together, deepening their knowledge and their understanding of our historical and civic processes for the purposes of bringing that information back to the school,” Wells said.
Participants will fly to Baltimore, stay on the college campus, attend daily sessions and learn from a variety of scholars. They will also tour a number of sites between Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. including four national parks, Mount Vernon and Gettysburg.
Murphy said she is excited for the upcoming adventure.
