Five Clovis Unified School District students earned top awards in the
state’s National History Day competition last weekend in San Jose. All
five qualified to advance to the National Finals in Maryland next

Two high school students took first place. Sundeep Bekal of Clovis
High won in the website category for his project on the Cuban Missile
Crisis. Robyn Young of Buchanan High School won in the individual
performance category for her project about Armenia.

Three high school students earned runner-up awards: Kaitlyn Sims of
Buchanan High; and Aubriel Soghomonian and Samantha Bourbon, both from
Clovis East. Those earning runner-up awards do not advance to the
National Finals.

In the Junior division, Clovis Unified had three students advancing to
the National Finals. Kristen Sims of Alta Sierra Intermediate won in
the performance category on her project about the Normandy invasion of
World War II; and Harsimran Bhandal and Christopher Rouillard of
Granite Ridge Middle School won the website category for their Cuban
Missile Crisis project.
