Summer of Learning-Trip to Europe

More and more colleges and universities are looking for international experience on students' applications to set them apart.  Travel isn't just educational; it's an investment that gives students an advantage in a competitive world. 

With that in mind, I'm excited to announce that a group of student and teachers from my high school are traveling on an educational tour to London, Paris & Rome during the summer of 2015!  On this tour, students will experience new cultures and important landmarks such as the Big Ben, the House of Parliament, the Louvre, Notre dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower and the Colosseum. 

There are a limited number of spots available, I would LOVE an opportunity to fill one of those spots.  As a student I must meet academic, behavior and other school requirements to attend; in addition, my family will endure the cost of this trip. 

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and contributions would be greatly appreciated to help me and my family accomplish this goal in my education experience.

With gratitude,
