7 seniors recognized for excellence in historical studies

Seven Santa Catalina School seniors have received awards from the National History Society.

The awards recognize outstanding history students at member schools, with honors going to the top 10 percent of students in a senior class.

This year’s winners were presented with honorific burgundy cords during Assembly on April 21. They are Alix Detrait, Angie Leissner, Caroline Maguire, Georgia Meyer, Jenna Tarallo, Cailin Templeman, and Carson Vogel.

Santa Catalina has a strong record of achievement in historical studies. In addition to having one National History Day nationwide winner, 10 other Catalinans have published scholarly essays in The Concord Review, the world’s leading academic journal for excellence in historical research and writing at the high school level.

Catalina was established as the National History Society’s first Charter Member school in 2009.
