Schmidt & Taylor Advance

Schmidt & Taylor Advance

April 8, 2014

Junior students, James Schmidt and Taylor Timm, received word today that their project finished 6th out of 118 entries in the recent regional level National History Day Competition held in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They were also notified that they have earned the right to present their project at the state competition on May 3rd. The theme of this year’s contest was “Rights and Responsibilities.”

Their project is based upon the life of Eric Liddell, a Scottish Olympic athlete, who, during the 1924 Olympics in Paris, chose not to compete in his best event because it was being held on Sunday, the Christian Sabbath. His Olympic story is partially chronicled in the famous film, Chariots of Fire. Moreover, Lidell’s life as a Christian missionary to China, and the tribulations suffered as a result, tell even more of his deep conviction to honor God with life.

Congratulations to you both!

National History Day

National History Day

April 7, 2014

On Saturday, April 5th, several students from WRLHS had an opportunity to compete in the National History Day regional competition at the Kress Center of UW-Green Bay.

“National History Day (NHD) is a highly regarded academic program for elementary and secondary school students. Each year, more than half a million students, encouraged by thousands of teachers nationwide participate in the NHD contest. Students choose historical topics related to a theme and conduct extensive primary and secondary research through libraries, archives, museums, oral history interviews and historic sites. After analyzing and interpreting their sources and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history, students present their work in original papers, websites, exhibits, performances and documentaries. These products are entered into competitions in the spring at local, state and national levels where they are evaluated by professional historians and educators. The program culminates in the Kenneth E. Behring National Contest each June held at the University of Maryland at College Park.” (from

This year’s topic was “Rights & Responsibilities.” Mr. Brent Schultz, who teaches social studies, acted as the school’s primary organizer and advisor for the event and did a great job preparing his students for such a massive undertaking. Congratulations to everyone on a job well done.
