Palmer High School Student, Graham Gale, came to us with an idea to combine two of her interests - local history & public media - for a school project. Graham visited the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and found the scrapbook of a young woman who lived in the rather different Colorado Springs of 100 years ago.
Fifteen-year-old Graham Gale has spent hours trying to solve the mystery of Mary Kyle, who was born 134 years ago. What she found earned her a new respect for local history and a top grade at Palmer High School for her International Baccalaureate community service project.
