Students do well at fairs

The Grambling High School Social Studies Club and student body held their annual Social Studies fair in the school’s library. There were 35 participants in the event. The projects were judged on creativity, presentation, delivery, and originality. The top ten contestants were: Galen Roberts (Native Americans), Alyxandrea Woods (Martin L. King), Joshua Glenn (America’s War on Dictatorship), Jaikeva Rogers/Jeffery Middleton (Great Migration), Tamara Norris (slavery), LaTonya Wilson/Rakeila Salsberry (Coretta Scott King), Michelle Standifer (Frederick Douglass), Annesha Osborne/Georgio Douglas (World War I), Porsha Kennedy/Randall Jackson (African History), and Carl Gipson (Harriet Tubman).

Planning has already begun for participating in the Regional Social Studies Fair for next year.

Region 6 Science Fair

Some GHS Students participated in the recently held Region 6 Science Fair at Louisiana Tech University all express pride in their involvement and accomplishments.

A total of 19 projects were evaluated by the judges. Students’ research interests were varied and most pertinent topics of interest to teens. Projects placing were: 1st, Animal Science, Harmony Pearce and Jessica Morgan; 2nd, Energy and Transportation, Patsy White and Amanda Sapp; 3rd, Animal Science, Cederrick Mixon and Destiny Lowe; 3rd Chemistry Bryce Bass and Ledarius Conley; and 4th, Animal Science, Nicholas Moore and Joshua Glenn.

Most participants are members of the science club. Club president, Dominic Calhoun, as well as the school’s administration, believe that the participation in such events help to maximize the club’s set goals for the year. This also adheres to the club’s theme: “Who will do Science: If not you then who?”

Other ongoing goals are to increase the number of field trips, number of guest speakers, participation in Science Olympiad activities and partnership with Grambling State University faculty and staff scientific community.
