HPJ Students Present Research
On Saturday March 26th Andrew Zaebst, Brendan Kinder, Megan Piersol, and Caitlin Kegley traveled to Oakland College to present at the regional Phi Alpha Theta Conference. Phi Alpha Theta is a national honorary that recognizes students who are history majors or history enthusiasts. The students presented with topics ranging from the Kent State Massacre to Henry the 8th. Papers were scored by a panel of judges and winners received a book voucher from Phi Alpha Theta nationals. Megan Piersol won the award in the Medieval History category with her paper, "The King's Great Matter: Conflicting Viewpoints on the Divorce of Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon." The students were accompanied by Dr. John Philip Lomax and Dr. Robert Waters, both of whom served as judges. The students ended the day with a trip to Sonic where a good time was had by all!
