Miller Middle School students in a Project Based Learning seventh grade class taught by Brett Comegys provided presentations at the school on April 17. The students presented to an audience of school board members, school administrators and local historical society staff.

The project was designed to promote local points of interest including historical and tourist sites among others to make more people aware of these attractions.

Students presented websites, videos and a map to the guests.

“We have them walk through the process, explain the process and then take feedback,” Comegys said.

He said many of the information is presented in both English and Spanish to attempt to promote a “new niche of pride” in the community sites.

Visitors included Superintendent Dr. Theron Schutte, Curriculum Director Pam Brewer-Michael, Michelle Roseburrough and Miriam Bryant from the Historical Society and school board members Janelle Carter and Mike Miller.
