History in the Making
Will Calovich has an affinity for learning about history. His love of history began in middle school when he started learning about World War II, Ancient History and the Industrial Revolution.
“My love of history began when I was in the sixth grade,” Calovich said. “I loved learning about different concepts, inventions, and chain reactions that have occurred throughout history.”
Calovich said he enjoys learning about the impacts these events have had on modern-day society and hopes more people would appreciate history.
“I wish more people would appreciate world history. History might help people prevent mistakes that have already happened, and they help guide us in the future,” Calovich said.
This year, Calovich conducted a project on the original “Godzilla” movie. Calovich placed first at districts and state for National History Day in his category.
His project is titled “Gojira vs. Godzilla: Lost in Translation or Censored Communication.”
According to Calovich, he never knew how much he would have enjoyed learning all about history, but it has become a big part of his life.
“Try it out,” Calovich said. “Stick with it, and you might just realize how cool history really is.”
