Three eighth-grade students have won an international award for the documentary they produced on Emma Darling Cushman, an American missionary nurse who is credited with saving thousands of Armenian orphans. The award comes from the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes in Fort Scott, Kansas.
Cushman remained in Turkey after the Great War began, one of few Westerners to do so.
