Fourth Formers Rishi Bargaria, Ben Fiske, Shaezmina Khan, Hunter Korn, Hunter Mellon, Emilia Onuonga, Kevin Xiao, and Stephanie Yoon have been selected as Lawrenceville’s 2018-19 Heely Scholars.
The Heely Scholar program is a two week boarding seminar in archival research for rising Fifth Formers that have demonstrated a keen interest and ability in their study of American history. The intent of the program is to introduce students to primary research from the School’s collection and local research institutions. Each year students consider a particular portion of the collection that allows them to place Lawrenceville within the historic context of national and global events. This summer’s research topic will be “Antebellum America.”
Heely Scholars are subsequently enrolled in an Advanced Research Seminar. The intent of the fall course is to give the Scholars the opportunity to expand their summer research into an individual senior thesis while being introduced to the conventions and the discipline of historical writing.
