School of Education Contest Honors Fallen Military Veterans
The Vermillion Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3061 sponsored the effort that is tied to Memorial Day and aims to enhance undergraduate students' research skills and to recognize veterans as an important component of the university's Inclusive Excellence.
Students researched and wrote about a fallen hero from Clay County and submitted a total of 36 research projects in March. A ROTC committee reviewed each submission and recommended 10 to the Vermillion VFW, which narrowed the pool to the top five who gave their oral presentation to a panel of veterans on Thursday in Delzell Education Center.
The cash prize winners: first place ($300), Lexy Zimmerman, a junior secondary history education major from Flandreau, South Dakota; second place ($200), Sean Bredl, a senior secondary history education major from Cedar Rapids, Iowa; third place ($100), Delaney Mae Clark, from Fremont, Nebraska, and Matt Viereck, from Larchwood, Iowa, both seniors majoring in elementary education/special education.
