About this Grantee

Through “Honoring the Past to Preserve our Future,” Ms. Wamboldt and Mr. Liska implement a historical preservation project to increase the problem-solving and historiographical skills of their eighth-grade students. Students research, write tour descriptions, and lead guided tours of historic buildings. Working with a local veterans’ hospital, students create a public service announcement on the historical significance of several Veterans Association buildings to generate support for placing them on the National Register of Historic Places.
