CHS teacher visits American WWI cemeteries in France

Chamberlain High School teacher Carissa Vanderlay was one of eighteen teachers selected to participate in Memorializing the Fallen- a teacher professional development program sponsored by the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission. The goal of the program was to reinvigorate the teaching and learning of World War I in classrooms across the country as the 100th anniversary of the end of the war is observed. Vanderlay was assigned the name of a fallen South Dakota solider, Major George E. Sperbeck, to research and write an eulogy to be read at his grave site in the Muese-Argonne American Cemetery in France. She travel to Europe last June to visit the last resting place of many United States Soldiers who lost their lives during World War I and remain in France.
