A team of East Meadow High School seniors has been named winner of the Presidential History Award, sponsored by the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site. The students achieved this distinction as a result of their participation in the National History Day Competition, held on March 31 at Hofstra University.

Suha Chaudhury, Celeste Costa, Ava Giorgio and Ayesha Rehman submitted a website project that analyzed the triumph and tragedy of the Jonestown Massacre. The group members were presented with certificates to acknowledge their accomplishment. All four students are involved in the school’s Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society and have an interest in the subject.

“Congratulations to these young historians for their hard work and honors,” said Chairperson of Social Studies Drew Genoino.
