The Decatur High School Close Up students are having a great time in Washington, D.C.
Wednesday's "Capitol Hill Day" was a lot of work but the kids enjoyed themselves and learned a great deal. The students took a tour of the Supreme Court, the Capitol, met with staff from the offices of John Lewis and Saxby Chambliss and had a seminar at the Heritage Foundation.
On Thursday, students will tour Mt. Vernon and the Newseum. On Friday, students will lay a wreath at the Korean Memorial (dedicated to Edward R. Ravenel, Class of 1943, Charles Jackson, Class of 945 and Gene S. Blough, Class of 1948).
The students will end the trip taking a tour of the White House and Arlington Cemetery. If you have any information you would like to share concerning these student, please reply firstname.lastname@example.org
