A Journey through Vietnam, Southern High School’s Maryland Veterans Oral History Project, was recently awarded Four Rivers Heritage Area 2018 Heritage Partnership of the Year.

The program is a partnership between the school and Maryland Humanities, under the leadership of social studies teacher Jennifer Davidson…Davidson’s work with freshmen students on the Maryland veterans oral history project has helped crystallize what that can mean. From the time the signature program was adopted in 2011, she said she “explored different ideas,” but didn’t really have a concrete plan for incorporating the signature into the classroom.
