Student/Teacher Research Institute Acceptance Honor

Posted in News & Announcements

Ellingson Simmons Photo

Jacob Simmons, a former Albion student and current Brighton High student, along with our own Mrs. Eden Ellingson (Grade 8 U.S. History) will embark on a year-long course of study that concludes with a trip to Normandy, France to honor a WWII Silent Hero who died during or after the Normandy Invasion. Courses, materials, and international travel are paid for by the generosity of Mr. Albert H. Small.

Jacob and Mrs. Ellingson join 14 other students and teacher teams from around the country on this educational journey. Teams select one Silent Hero from their hometown or state who is memorialized at the Normandy American Cemetery. Ellingson and Simmons then conduct in-depth historical research on the life of this Silent Hero.

The Normandy: Sacrifice for Freedom® Albert H. Small Student and Teacher Institute is coordinated by National History Day® and is funded by a generous donation from Mr. Albert H. Small, a veteran himself.

Simmons, under the guidance of Mrs. Ellingson, will create a memorial profile on NHDSilentHeroes.org. These pages live on as a digital memorial to the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. After participating in the program, Simmons and Ellingson will be charged with presenting the story of their Silent Hero to local schools, community groups, and veterans’ organizations
