DAYTON–Four Dayton High School students spent a week last summer touring the nation's capital as part of a program called World Classrooms. The foursome, along with chaperone Kristin Frankie, saw the monuments and museums and soaked in the history of the District of Columbia and the Gettysburg Battlefield from June 26 through July 1.

Attending the tour were Jordan McCowen, Carson Potter, Skylar McCann, and Brenna Sinkbeil. The four presented a program to the Dayton Kiwanis Club last week. The club helped sponsor the trip.

All lamented that a week is not enough time, given the magnitude of museums, monuments and other historic locations that are available.

Among the sites were the White House, Capital Building, Lincoln Memorial, Smithsonian Institution, Arlington National Cemetery, Gettysburg Battlefield and others.

All stated they were impressed by the experience and desire to return and take in more of the capital.
