Maryland History Day is a family event!

Walking around Maryland History Day yesterday, I got to meet all kinds of people, but I ran into two people that prove history day is a family event!  I ran into Meghan and Chris Perdue, both participating in the performance category.  Meghan created a skit about Clara Barton and the legacy she left with the Red Cross of America.  She was inspired to write the skit after seeing local actress, Mary Ann Jung portray Clara Barton.  In addition, she thought it was amazing that an organization started over 100 years ago is still in existence.  Her brother, Chris created a skit about scottish literary figure Robert Burns.  He was inspired to choose this topic because he’s interested in everything scottish!  Chris placed in Nationals for his skit.  Congrats to the Perdue family!  Its nice to see families getting involved in this!
