Bay County student’s project selected for National History Day finals | #students | #parents


PANAMA CITY — Pearl Amromin always has had a special interest in history, from exploring historical sites around the world with her parents to researching the paths of those who lived centuries ago.

The Rutherford High School student said when given a history project, she’s always gone above and beyond in learning about the subject.

That passion is paying off, with her work to be showcased throughout the summer in a museum in the nation’s capital as part of the National History Day program.

National History Day is a year-long academic program focused on historical research, interpretation and creative expression for sixth- to 12-grade students. The upcoming junior’s project was a website on Marjory Stoneman Douglas, an American journalist and conservationist. Amromin’s website focuses on Douglas’ life and how Douglas fought to save the Everglades.

Amromin previously had been to district and state competitions three times for National History Day but never made it to nationals. Hearing her name called was overwhelming, she said.
