History club hosted its annual history simulation, focusing this year on women’s suffrage in honor of the 100-year anniversary of women gaining the right to vote in the United States. Using interactive games, performances, costumes and guest speakers, the club was able to educate students and faculty on the long and hard struggle for equality at the voting booth.
“It was worth all the time and effort we spent on it, especially seeing the impact on the younger grades,” History Club officer Gabby Gentile said.
The club prepared extensively for many months over the course of the school year, with all of it leading up to the recent simulation. Everything went smoothly, with the help of a number of volunteers.
“I just wanted to help out and I believe that history simulation is important because it helps people have an immersive experience in the event or time period to help people understand it more,” eleventh-grade volunteer Risdon Bradley said.
“Everyone learned something during that simulation, and I am proud of all the people in the club who helped make that happened,” Gentile said.
