HHCA Students Tour Washington DC

HHCA's Class of 2028 just returned from the annual 8th-grade trip to Washington D.C -- a comprehensive learning experience that combined history, civic education, and an appreciation for our nation’s heritage. In addition to visiting the United States Capitol Building to learn more about the legislative process and the heart of American democracy, students explored monuments, memorials, and museums that offered fascinating insight into American history and a deeper look at the rich heritage of our nation's founding fathers.  

Highlights of the trip included visiting Arlington National Cemetary, where four HHCA students participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to honor U.S. veterans and members of the U.S. armed forces. 

Students also enjoyed hearing from HHCA alum Reedy Newton (Class of 2019), about her role as Deputy Scheduler and Special Projects Coordinator for South Carolina Senator Tim Scott. 

Finally, students had the privilege of meeting with South Carolina Senator Tim Scott and Iowa Senator Joni Ernst, who both addressed the group on the steps of the United States Capitol Building.
