Denton County seeking local junior historians

Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square

The Denton County Office of History & Culture is looking for local high school students to join the 2018-19 Denton County junior historians program, which is now chartered as Chapter. No. 933 of the Junior Historians of Texas.

The junior historian program is an opportunity for high school students in Denton County to work together and engage in local history in new and interesting ways, according to a news release from the Office of History & Culture. Members will attend meetings twice a month on Tuesday evenings, volunteer at special events and work together on group projects that include designing exhibits and working with historical artifacts from the museum’s collection.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students to develop leadership skills, to give back to the community, meet new people and engage in local history,” the news release said. “We want the students to have a lasting appreciation for local history and carry the torch for future generations.”
