West High Graduate Wins National History Award

West High graduate Michael Calhoun won second place in the senior individual documentary division of the National History Day contest. This prestigious award follows the honors he received through the St. Louis History Day and National History Day in Missouri competitions. Michael's documentary film, "KMOX: A Newspaper of the Air," explores the innovation of talk radio and features interviews with Bob Costas, Dan Dierdorf, McGraw Millhaven and Charles Brennan. Michael researched, wrote, produced and narrated the project by using the television facilities of Cooperating School Districts. Michael graduated from West High in May and plans to attend the University of Missouri-Columbia in the fall to study journalism. He was also recently named a national winner in the American Society of Newspaper Editors/Quill and Scroll 2004 International Writing and Photo Contest. His article, "Students on Both Sides," featured student involvement in the area's grocery store strike. More than 700,000 students nationwide participated in the National History Day competition. National History Day is a widely acclaimed academic enrichment program that promotes the study of history in our schools. It encourages students to take a creative approach to study while learning research techniques and writing and communication skills.
