TRiO Talent Search Students Visit the Windy City

by Tim Brunicardi on June 20, 2019

Thirty students and four staff members from the TRiO Talent Search Program embarked on a cultural enrichment trip to Chicago on June 4-6.62356220_10158613692838009_153423301329289216_o

Hocking College's TRiO Director, Molly Watson, alongside Missy Jones (Southern Local Schools), Lynann Bolyard (Trimble Local Schools), and Morgan Hutchison (Tri-County Career Center), coordinated a trip in which they each took 10 students from their schools to Chicago. This trip served as a reward to those students for all the hard work they did throughout the school year.

What Activities Did the
Students Do?

In addition to taking both a bus and riverboat tour, the students and coordinators enjoyed the following attractions during their trip to Chicago:

  • Navy Pier
  • Cloud Gate at Millennium Park
  • Shedd Aquarium
  • Natural History Museum
  • 360 Chicago
  • Lincoln Park Zoo
