Going for Gold: A Lesson in Local History

Emma Dionnegold award centennial logoEmma noticed that the new education system in her town left little room for teachers to discuss local history. To teach young students about the history of her town, she put together an interactive presentation about Hopkinton’s rich history and the lives of students hundreds of years ago. She presented this information to seven third-grade classes at the local elementary school, and she intends to return next year to give the presentation to new classes. She provided a copy to the teachers and the Hopkinton Historical Society for anyone to access. Emma also aided the Hopkinton Historical Society in their transition to becoming a museum by creating a detailed instruction sheet that teaches museum volunteers how to use the new cataloging software.

Local history is so important, and we applaud Emma for teaching young students about their town!
