2022-23 Lawrenceville Heely Scholars Selected

Congratulations to Lawrenceville’s newest Heely Scholars: Autri Basu, Lillian Gessner, Isabel Gray, Ely Hahami, Hartley Ju, Elizabeth Parnell, Aiden Rourke, and Yan Tsenter. These rising Fifth Formers have demonstrated a keen interest and ability in the study of American history.

The Heely Scholars will return to campus this summer to spend two week exploring the rich collection of World War II material from Lawrenceville’s Stephan Archives, examining what life was like at the School during wartime. In the fall, the Scholars will continue their studies in an advanced research seminar. They will do further, independent research on something that sparked their interest over the summer about Lawrenceville’s place in World War II-era history and present their work to the School community in the fall. The program is led by history teacher Anne Louise Smit.

The Heely Scholars focus on experiential learning and the belief archival material exists to be used and not merely saved. They produce materials that facilitate the access and enrichment of Stephan Archives by the larger community through the creation of exhibits, films, podcasts, oral histories, and classroom curriculum.
