Seventh Grader’s Essay Recognized by the Society of the Cincinnati

Zachary Stern ’19 has been awarded the first place prize of $500 by the Society of the Cincinnati of Maryland for his essay on the contributions of War of 1812 hero Samuel Smith to America. The Society promotes public interest in the American Revolution through its library and museum collections, exhibitions, programs, publications, and other activities. In awarding the honor, Mr. William A. Fisher wrote, “It has been a very close finish among the three essayists selected as finalists, and Zachary and The Park School should be very proud of the essay developed and submitted by him. Our Society’s most fervent hope is that this essay contest has exposed the participating essayists to the values and contributions of one of our most important Maryland forefathers and will encourage an interest to learn more about the historical individuals who may not be so well-known but have made a significant contribution to the foundations of our state and nation.”
