Prodell Middle School students were honored at a recent Board of
Education meeting for their participation in National History Day.
Introduced by Principal Kevin Vann, students Natalie Casey, Melanie
Hagen, Allie Kall, Anja Minty, Carly Mulroy, Aaron Russell, Kathryn
Winters and Alex Zhang were lauded for their well-researched and
creative exhibits that were presented at the annual event at Hofstra
University. Mr. Vann made special mention on Carly Mulroy’s presentation
and research about Nikola Tesla, that was very close to making it to
the New York State competition. He also thanked the families of the
students for supporting their children’s passion for history and teacher
Danielle Senneca for her commitment to the program. Board President
Michael Lewis also congratulated and thanked the students for
representing the school district in the prestigious competition.
