National History Day 2017

Dinuba High School had 36 students participate in the district held National History Day event at TCOE. Of those 36 students, 26 have received rewards and are moving onto State National History Day which is held in Rocklin on May 6-7. Please take a moment to look at those students who have dedicated countless hours on the research and creation of their wonderfully done projects. I have had the pleasure to watch these students come together and explore topics in history and begin to see the relevance of history in their own lives. Several other teachers and administration yesterday complimented these Dinuba High students for their level of professionalism and their mature demeanor.
