Yesterday’s success of our National History Day participants came just days after last Jacob Freund (Class of 2014), received a boxful of copies of the peer-reviewed quarterly, Journal of the West. Jacob, last year’s New York State History Day winner, wrote a terrific paper on the Homestead Act of 1862. The research paper was accepted for submission by the Journal of the West, which, with this current issue, has made Jac0b a published scholar! This scholarly journal rarely publishes research from college students; an scholarly work from a high school student is exceptional!
Congratulations to Jacob on this wonderful achievement!
