Close Up

Earlier this summer, 12 students from West Point and their two sponsors left for a trip they would never forget. They traveled to Washington D.C. and New York City through an organization known as Close Up.

According to Close Up, its mission is “to inform, inspire, and empower young people to exercise the rights and accept the responsibilities of citizens in a democracy.”

Taking part in the educational experience were 2018 West Point-Beemer H.S. graduates Kalli Meyer, Leigh Jahnke, Tate Ernesti, Holly Hansen, and Destiny Bales, and current WP-B seniors, Haley Chambliess, Rebecca Weddell, Andrea Hoffman, Abby Kaup, Kendra Paasch and Ashton Troyer. Also on the trip was current Guardian Angels Central Catholic senior Dylan Duhsmann.

Leading the group were history teachers Keith Eriksen and Steihl Reeves. Eriksen teaches at West Point-Beemer. Reeves taught at WP-B last year but now teaches at Blair High School.

I love to go on these type trips which give me a lot of new things to learn and this picture will remember in the minds of these students for a long time. Working with cheap essay writers give me many important blogs for reading which I really like.
