Four St. Mary’s College history students – Caitlin Schoen ’18, Abigail Rose ’20, Megan Root ’19, and Sara Casper-Woodhead ’19 – presented their papers at the Phi Alpha Theta (National Honors History Society) Regional Conference. Two students won awards for their papers.

Root won second prize in the world history category. Schoen’s paper prompted the judges to create a historiography category so that her work could be highlighted. Commentators stressed that St. Mary’s College students’ papers demonstrated great research, writing, and argumentation, and that the papers were thought-provoking and relevant.
