Ashley Vincenzo’s NHD Research Recognized at BOE Monthly Meeting!

At Monday’s monthly Board of Education meeting, Wheatley 9th Grader Ashley Vincenzo was recognized for her outstanding work in last year’s National History Day competition. As a result of her strong performance at the New York State Competition in Cooperstown last April, Ashley earned the right to present her work at the National Competition at the University of Maryland in June.

Competing in the “Junior Individual Website” categories against hundreds of the top projects from across the country, Ashley just missed being advanced to the run-off round of the finals competition. Ashley’s research involved the Cuban Missile Crisis.
