Students from four counties gathered this week at the RESA II Social Studies Fair in Huntington, W.Va., to present their research on topics such as moonshine, the duties of early Appalachian women and more, with some students incorporating their family history into their research. The 80-plus projects on display were the top divisional winners from fairs held in each county. "It's looking at cause and effect or compare and contrast, asking how certain events have changed history," said Lenora Richardson, the director of curriculum and assessment with Cabell County Schools. "It's much more in-depth than we've done in the past."
