Not pictured is fellow cadet, Jake Dean, who also performed that day. A fifth cadet, Evan Hill, will join them at the national competition June 14-18 at the University of Maryland. - photo by Provided by CMA
In a few weeks, five cadets from Camden Military Academy (CMA) will travel to the University of Maryland’s main campus in College Park, Md., to represent South Carolina in the annual National History Day competition. The contest will be held June 14-18. Believe it or not, the trip to Maryland may not be as important to them as the one they took a few weeks ago to a town right here in South Carolina.
