ELIZABETH–Members of Benedictine Academy’s senior class visited Washington D.C. from April 18-20. The all-expense-paid trip was the gift of a benefactor of the school.
“This extraordinary gift for our seniors was a fabulous opportunity to travel with classmates as well as explore the historic, artistic, and cultural treasures of our American capital,” Benedictine Academy Principal Kenneth Jennings said.
The seniors visited the Smithsonian museums, Arlington National Cemetery, and various sites such as the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial. Benedictine Academy school staff and faculty accompanied the seniors as chaperones on the trip, which included lectured sightseeing by an educational tour service.
