Documentary on “Women at West Point: Breaking Barriers of the Long Gray Line” wins 1st Place at National History Day Competition in State of Pennsylvania

Two high school students, freshman Kathryn Miller and sophomore Kailyn Rowland, from Carlisle High School, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, won First Place Honors at the 2020 National History Day Competition in the State of Pennsylvania for their history documentary entitled “Women at West Point: Breaking Barriers of the Long Gray Line.”   After conducting extensive research and interviews, Kathryn Miller and Kailyn Rowland wrote, directed, and produced a documentary telling the historical journey of the first women to graduate from the United States Military Academy.  As a result of their win, the documentary will compete at the National Level in June.

Each year, more than half a million students participate in the National History Day competition.

Thank you, Kathryn and Kailyn, for your amazing talent in creating this historical documentary and your thoughtfulness in sharing with the Army Women’s Foundation.
