History’s Mysteries At Visiting Nursing Service Prep

Can you remember the color of General George Washington’s horse? How about its name? Can you name the two submersible vessels and which side they were on during the Civil War? Explain the 13th Amendment to the Constitution and the Dred Scott decision. These and other various facts about the history of the United States play an important role in our lives as U.S. citizens.  These are but some of the facts that are tested in American History trivia that the students of VNS Prep’s History’s Mysteries class are taught. Students from Belle Harbor to Beach 9 Street have benefited from this program as they gain points by recalling facts and competing as they are fascinated by our countries history. Each session has four winners, who receive awards and dinner culminating in an end the year championship hosted by Applebee’s Restaurant in the Five Towns. Pictured, (left to right) with their awards are Kevin Coleman, (1st quarter champion), Carolyn Leigh-Carter, (VNS Prep teacher), Felix Cruz, Tauana Goins, Lyndell Banks, Ira Marcus, (Applebee’s kitchen manger), and Elizabeth H. Davoren, (hostess), and kneeling is Professor Coach Carter (History’s Mysteries instructor).
