Third in U.S. for FHS’s Lui

Rena Lui, representing Farragut High School, was one of two Tennessee students who medaled at the 2019 National History Day competition, with the theme of “Triumph and Tragedy in History,” held at the University of Maryland, College Park, June 9-13.

With FHS teacher Angela Breeding credited, Lui earned third-place for Senior Individual Paper, “The My Lai Massacre: The Tragedy and Its Triumphs.”

Fifty-six Tennessee students, working either individual or in groups, submitted 36 entries. The students earned the right to compete at National History Day by winning medals at the recent state contest, Tennessee History Day.
