Bradford wax museum

On May 3, the eighth-grade class at Bradford Jr. High School participated in the fourth annual “Wax Museum.” This event was the culminating activity for a research project assigned to each student in their language arts class. After an extensive writing process, the students “become” the person they chose to research at the “Wax Museum”. They created a brief biography card that they were required to memorize and display. Visitors to the Museum experience an interactive “exhibit” when they pushed the button and the “wax figures” came to life. Participating in the event are (front row, from left) David Winter, Cheyenne Cade, Samantha Weir, April Atkins, Samantha Wall, Brianna Endress, Hannah Dries, Savannah Wall, Rebecca Baker, Jared Code and Alissa Johnson; and (back row) Natahsa Mueller, Bailey Longman, Chris Cade, Dalton Hancher, Jacob Painter, Laura Rouse, Jenna Ehnle, C.J. Piper, Gavin Smith, Todd Reay and Brock Stotler.
