PAGE 6-A HOGANSVILLE HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 2002 Hogansville Student Participates in National History By CINDY ADAMS Tvo thousand students, waving flags and banners representative of fifty states and the District of Columbia, paraded around the floor of the University of Maryland's Cole Field House to patriot- ic tunes provided by the Air Force Band in the prelude to the June 13th awards cere- mony of National History Day. The program then began with the presentation of col- ors provided by the Armed Forces Color Guard, a per- formance by the Marine Corps Silent Drill Team and an address presented by speaker, Rod Paige, U.S. Secretary of Education. Presentation of awards then followed and, at its conclu- sion, local students had walked away with two of the program's most prestigious awards. AMANDA ADAMS, 14- year-old daughter of Cindy Adams of Hogansville, com- peted in the Junior Individual Performance category. Her presentation, consisting of a ten minute monologue enti- tled "The Waitress Who Wouldn't Serve," told the story of the Greensboro Sit- Ins, a six-month long demon- stration which began when four black college students demanded the right to be served at a Woolworth lunch counter in 1960s North Carolina. In portraying the caucasian waitress. Amanda's performance demonstrated the "white" side of the issue, involving social and economic demands, as well as the "black" side, the struggle of a race to be treated with equality. The Greensboro Four are credited with set- ting the example of the non- violent protest which was later followed by thousands of students in the revolution for civil rights in America. Selected as a finalist in her category, Amanda gained the position of fourth place among all national junior per- formers and was also chosen to receive the African- American History Award. This award is given to one student, from either junior (6th-8th grades) or senior (9th-12th grades) divisions, who best demonstrates any issue in African-American history. JUSTIN DI Feliciantonio, 14-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Steven Di Feliciantonio of LaGrange, competed in the Junior Individual Documentary category with his entry entitled "Jimmy Carter and the Camp David HAgWELL, BROWN & I-IARWFJL, P.C.

She told how a llama is like and different to its cousin the camel; then. she read a folk- tale entitled "The Mama and the Great Flood" by Ellen Alexander.

In this Peruvian myth about the Great Flood, a llama warns his master of the coming destruction and suggests taking refuge on a high peak in the Andes. Stories about a great flood are found in cultures throughout the world and are some of the most widely known in folktale literature. story, how to make stick the characters in the Each child then dialogue and acted story with their ended with funny llamas At the next June 27, meet a babushka with Bledsoe.
