Washingtonville Represented at National History Bee
Eighth grader Eddie Zecchini competed in the National History Bee this week in Chicago. Eddie started his journey to the national level with an in-class history bee given back in January. From there, he qualified for the regional round in Bergen County, New Jersey. His classmates have been cheering him on the whole way!
Eddie is a student of history. He sees connections between different people and places over the scope of time. He is able to see the “big picture” and make historical connections to modern day politics with ease. He loves studying different subject areas but is especially interested in learning about various American wars like WWII and Vietnam. Eddie’s love for history is something that all his classmates and teacher, Astrid Hagan see daily. When a hard question is asked or when a connection needs to be made, everyone looks to Eddie for the answer. Eddie will use every minute he can discussing history with his teacher and classmates.
We are so proud of his efforts and are so excited to have Washingtonville Middle School represented at the National History Bee level. Eddie reports that it was an amazing experience to share with his Dad. They were even able to sightsee Chicago when not answering history questions!. Congratulations Eddie! (Photo provided)
