James Monroe High School Students Assist Archaeologists
James Monroe High School students David Broyles, Matthew Goff, and Zoey Snider
assisted with the recent archaeological work at Cook’s Fort in Greenville under the supervision
of Drs. Kim and Stephen McBride. After the perimeter of the fort was determined using ground
penetrating radar and metal detectors the students helped sift excavated dirt to find artifacts.
Cook’s Fort, constructed in 1774, was one of a series of frontier forts built along the Greenbrier
River Valley in that era.
Student participation was organized jointly by the National Honor Society (NHS), of
which Zoey is President, and the Student Government Association (SGA), of which Matthew is
President. These two organizations develop leadership and seek ways to provide community
service. If your organization is interested in connecting with them please contact the NHS and
SGA advisor, Dr. Scott Womack, at [email protected] or via FaceBook Messenger.
