EDISON, NJ - Three Middlesex County College students were recently honored for essays they created on the topic of "Thinking About Education." In the contest, organized by the MCC History and Philosophy Honor Society, the students read the story of a Native American child who went to Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania from 1883 to 1890. They then answered two questions in their essays: What is the purpose of education, and did the main character receive a good education? Their essays were published in the society’s journal, Free Thought/ Pensamiento Libre, issue 2, 2017, and each received a plaque. The winners included Han Le (Somerset), Katsiaryna Sikorskaya (East Brunswick) and Fernando Faura (Avenel).


The History and Philosophy Honor Society, created in 2015, empowers and fosters students’ interest on history and philosophy and aims to strengthen members’ ability to transfer to history and philosophy programs around the nation, and ultimately to graduate school.
