March 2012. In conjunction with the Cambria County Historical Society, History Club presented a “History Short,” consisting of readings of stories from Saint Francis University’s past.
Thanks to Elyse, Julie, Leah, and Lizeth for making SFU’s history come to life. Thanks also to the Cambria County Historical Society and Dave Huber for inviting History Club to participate in this event. Read more and see more pics after the jump.
Lizeth George, president of History Club, was recognized by SFU’s Student Government Association for all the work she’s done with History Club at the First Annual Student Involvement Awards held on Thursday, April 19th, 2012.
In the past year, Lizeth has coordinated:
- field trips to “History Shorts” put on by the Cambria County Historical Society
- the production of a History Short, “Saint Francis University Among the Pines”
- a bus trip – free and open to all SFU students – to Washington, D.C.
- and other activities, meetings, and fundraisers.
Thanks to Lizeth and all the History Club members, especially officers Elyse Grasser, Kelly Anne Heyden, and Leah Kletzi, for your hard work and participation. History Club adds extracurricular fun and opportunities to the HiPS department and the SFU community.
In March 2012 the History Club sponsored a bus trip to Washington, D.C., to visit museums and celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Cherry Blossom Festival. The trip was free and open to any SFU student who wanted to come along. Read more about it and see more pictures after the jump!
