 Oak Ridge TAG students to compete at state competition

Recently three of our 8th Grade TAG students from Oak Ridge created National History Day projects. This year three of those students who participated in the regional competition in Waterloo were advanced to the state competition.

Akash Gururaja made a documentary about Ravi Shankar and his contributions to the music industry by bringing eastern music to the west. Thomas Digmann and Ben Hinz created a website about Arthur Ashe and his dedication and devotion to end apartheid in South Africa.

All three students will be competing in Des Moines at the State National History Day competition on Monday, May 4, at the Iowa Events Center.

Congratulations to Akash, Thomas and Ben on your outstanding achievements!

He works well with his peers and is very respected by the Linn-Mar community overall. He always treats others with dignity and respect and maintains an atmosphere that is focused on learning. It will be good to have him back at Linn-Mar.”

Bisgard left his principal position at Linn-Mar in 2013 to serve as a Regional Administrator at Grant Wood Area Agency Education and provides leadership and support to eleven consultants that serve all the schools in Grant Wood. He had been a respected principal at Linn-Mar for over ten years, serving first at Bowman Woods (2003-2007) and then opening Linn Grove (2007-2013). Prior to his time at Linn-Mar, Bisgard was an elementary principal at both Newton Community School District (2000-2003) and Independence Community School District (1996-2000). His education career began in 1990 as a 5th grade teacher for Newton Community School District.

Linn-Mar’s new Associate Superintendent earned his B.S. Degree in Elementary Education from The University of Iowa. He completed his M.S.E.
