The regional level of National History Day took place this past Saturday at UNCG. Erica Struble and Scott Swiger, two junior Alamance-Burlington Middle College students won first place in their category – Group exhibit. The title of their exhibit is “Conduct Unbecoming.” Their exhibit and process paper examines the rights and responsibilities of the government in caring for soldiers and their families who have been harmed by the toxic water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, NC. From the 1950s through the 1980s, people living or working at the U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, were potentially exposed to drinking water contaminated with industrial solvents, benzene, and other chemicals.
Both students have John Trammell for social studies this year. Erica is currently taking Civics and Economics and Scott is currently taking US History. They will advance to the state level competition to be held on April 26th at the Museum of History in Raleigh, NC.
