|Arriving in Washington, DC|
Five high achieving TCHS Service Learning Council students were selected as participants of the Annual COMPACT Washington, DC Trip. Paula, Alaina, Nhu, Adrian and Amaris joined Mrs. Doromal and 14 COMPACT students for a five-day trip to Washington, DC.
The students visited many exciting sites, including monuments, the Smithsonian museums, Mount Vernon, the White House, Bolling Air Force Base, the Ford Theater, Dance Place, and the Arlington Cemetery. They also visited some malls and restaurants.
The highlight of the trip was a visit to the Supreme Court to meet with COMPACT friend, Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas. He shared inspirational stories and took the time to talk to each of the students about their future plans.
