Junior Wins 4th in Texas State History Day Competition

Congratulations to CVHS junior Sumedha Mohanty! She competed in the Texas State History Day competition and won 4th place overall!
This year’s theme was “Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas” and Sumedha won fourth place in the senior division: Individual documentary with her film "Exploring the Ultimate Frontier - Space."
She presented a documentary on the race between the US and USSR to conquer space during the cold war era. Through an engrossing match format, the documentary showed how the US was trailing USSR for most of the time, but in the second half, inspired by JFK’s speech, it finally won the space race.
Amazing job, Sumedha!
