Murrysville, PA (June 4, 2019) ~ Katelynn Hyndman, a 7th grader at Franklin Regional Middle School (FRMS), received 3rd place in the State National History Day Competition. Ms. Hyndman is the first student in FRMS history to achieve this level in the annual National History Day statewide competition.
