USD Students Research Clay County Fallen Heroes
The project, sponsored by the Vermillion VFW 3061, involved 20 students in 7-12 Social Science Methods researching and writing a biography about the life of a fallen veteran from Clay County. Students researched fallen heroes from the World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War eras.
“I can tell the students are connected with their fallen hero and are inspired by this project which they hope to implement into their future classrooms,” said Jing Williams, assistant professor of curriculum and instruction.
The top five presentations will win a cash prize. The first place winner will be invited to speak at the Memorial Day Observance in Vermillion on May 29. All participating students will be invited to attend the ceremony.
