Mr. Danny D. Corbett
Academic year: 1993-1994 (Group performance)
Academic year: 1994-1995 (Group Performance)
Competing at the local, state, and national levels with teammates/friends as we represented our academic institution.
NHD helped me learn how to perform research and literature searches, develop in written/oral communication, and participate in team work.
1993-1994 (Group performance: 1st in district, 1st in state, 6th in nation)
1994-1995 (Group performance: 1st in district)
As I slowly matured, I realized that my first academic mentor was Mr. Danny Corbett as part of the NHD. Indeed, what I learned working on the history projects under his tutelage — writing, collaboration/team work, communicating, group discussions, etc. — are skills that I needed during my undergraduate and graduate studies, and skills that I still use today.
