A small group of high school students look at a map as they explore community development

In a unique educational collaboration, students from Sidney High School’s Intro to Human Geography course recently experienced an enriching journey through their community's history and urban development followed by a high-level overview of recent and future development of their community. Partnering with the Shelby County Historical Society and the City of Sidney government, this field trip exposed students to practical insights into the dynamics of human geography within their own backyard.

Led by Mr. Brett Bickel, Intro to Human Geography is a new College Credit Plus course at Sidney High Schools that covers physical and political geography but also explores people, culture, migration, religion, trade, development, and all aspects of human development and connection.

SHS sophomores Marly Coons and Cartier Thompson are State Champions in the American Legion Americanism and Government Test and have earned an all-expense-paid, week-long trip to historic Gettysburg, PA, and the nation’s capital, Washington, DC. The American Legion Department of Ohio sponsors the yearly trip taking the top 3 boys and 3 girls in grades 10-12 for a total of only 18 students statewide.   

The Ohio American Legion Americanism and Government is an opportunity for high school students to evaluate themselves in American government and history through this statewide test program. Over 65,000 students participate annually in this project, which The American Legion Auxiliary jointly sponsors.

Coons and Thompson are the latest in a long line of state winners at SHS. Since 1970, Sidney High School has had an impressive 39 state winners, with 28 of those winners since 2005, and at least one state winner every year since 2009.
