Locy honored by historical society

Amanda Booth
Senior Kameron Locy was recognized by the Whitehall Historical Society.

Senior Kameron Locy plans on pursuing a career path in STEM. However, her constant efforts in all of her classes have earned her the best history student award from the Whitehall Historical Society. 

“I plan on going into the engineering field,” Locy said, “although history is something that I plan on always continuing to learn about.”

This is the Whitehall Historical Society’s first year recognizing a student for their outstanding work in history courses. The award is open to students living in Whitehall.

Locy, who was recognized at one of the group’s recent meetings, said being nominated and winning is a great honor. 

“It was really nice to be recognized and see the Whitehall Historical Society. I had no idea the organization was so prominent. It was a cool experience,” Locy said. 

History teacher Doug Graff, one of teachers who nominated Locy for the reward, acknowledged her effort in the classroom. 

“I had Kameron as a freshman in honors history and she excelled in her work and had a vast interest in the material,” Graff said. 

Although Locy does not plan on turning her history knowledge into a career, she enjoys learning about it. 

“It is cool to look into the past and get to experience what other people did from different time periods. I also think it is good to learn from mistakes made in history, so we do not repeat them,” Locy said. 

The historical society has donated a copy of Tom Brokaw’s book The Greatest Generation, which is about the World War II generation, to the high school’s library in honor of Locy.
