Teachers Raffle Basket at ASU with Arizona Recollections and Reflections

 What teacher would not love this adorable basket filled with Arizona history? Designed by AHS Dr. Kristen Rex, the raffle basket went to a Geography, Social Studies and Civics ‘Back to School’ event (who are often National History Day teachers) held at ASU.  Note: Historical League’s Centennial book, Arizona Recollections and Reflections. It continues to tell stories of Arizona in first person accounts. And that is what NHD teachers and students look for.

NHD teachers receive Centennial book Arizona Recollections and Reflections

 The Historical League Board of Directors approved the donation of 20 AZ Recollections and Reflections books to teachers who had participated in 2023 National History Day. The Centennial books continue to tell the story of Arizona, being great resources for the NHDAZ teachers and students. Thanks to Historical League member Cathy Shumard for suggesting the idea and AHS Dr. Kristen Rex organizing the donation to Geography, Civics and Social Studies teachers.

We much appreciate Historical League member Tom Shumard, the worker bee, who wrapped and mailed them.

NHDAZ students showcase their projects at Historymakers Celebration Oct. 14

National History Day AZ students will be at Arizona Historymakers™ Celebration on October 14 at AZHS beginning at 3 pm. Cathy Shumard writes, “8 NHDAZ students with 2 teachers and 6 parents have accepted our invitation to showcase their award winning projects.”

With topics such as “Black Barbershops: Cutting to New Frontiers”, “John F. Long: Opening Frontier to Phoenix Building,” and “Sesame Street: New Frontiers in Intellectual and Social Education”, incorporated into websites, documentaries and exhibits we can see first hand the work they have done. It is with great enthusiasm that we meet these industrious students who show such potential . . . they could become future Historymakers.

Join us Oct 14 as we honor 2023 Arizona Historymakers Frank M. Barrios, Michael M. Crow Ph.D., Angel Delgadillo, Dolan Ellis, The Honorable Terry Goddard, Denise D. Resnik, Jeffrey M. Trent Ph.D., Daniel D. Von Hoff M.D., Mrs. Elizabeth J. White.

Celebrating Arizona Historymakers

Earlier this year, the Historical League, Inc. selected TGen Drs. Jeffrey Trent and Daniel D. Von Hoff as two of the 9 individuals named Arizona Historymakers for 2023. They join Frank Barrios, Dr. Michael Crow, Angel Delgadillo, Dolan Ellis, Terry Goddard, Denise Resnik, and Mrs. Elizabeth White as this year’s inductees.
  Created in 1992, the award program recognizes Arizona individuals who have distinguished themselves with noted achievements and have maintained ties to Arizona. 90 Historymakers have been honored over the years at celebration events and included in the Historymakers Hall exhibit at the Arizona Heritage Center. Their videos, oral histories, and transcripts are uploaded to the League’s website and preserved in the Library & Archives of Arizona Historical Society’s Arizona Heritage Center.
  Since 1979, the Historical League has contributed more than $2 million dollars to the Arizona Heritage Center and League members have volunteered over 175,000 hours to the museum.
  The Arizona Historymakers Committee will honor the inductees with a recognition event at 3:00 p.m., Saturday, October 14, at the Arizona Heritage Center in Papago Park. The public is welcome to attend. Tickets are $250 each. For further information and reservations, contact Diana Smith at 865-414-3220.
