Michael Artemus loves history. This year he has investigated his own family's history in Bill Stevens' US History unit on the Great Migration and explored how his own history is a part of our country's history. Michael's intellectual curiosity and dedication to understanding how the past influences the present earned him a place on the Gilder Lehrman National Student Advisory Council for the upcoming school year.
The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History provides opportunities for high school-aged historians to deepen their knowledge and receive guidance on the college admissions process. Benefits offered to this year's National Student Advisory Council members include
- Access to the "Tips on the College Process from a Professor’s Point of View” webinar by Barnard professor and president of the Gilder Lehrman Institute James G. Baker
- Forums to engage in discussion of important topics in American history
- Ongoing support in the college application process
Michael also received a copy of the book Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom by David Blight.
Congratulations to Michael on this recognition!
