by Amanda Parker – Horizon Features Editor
Hesston College will offer a one-credit-hour for a historical trip to the south during spring break.
March 9-13, John Sharp and Tony Brown will take any student interested in going to Alabama and Mississippi to learn more about the history of the civil rights movement. Students will get to see the history of the towns by participating in ceremonial walk from Brown Chapel across the Edmund Petus Bridge, Visits the Rosa Parks Library, the Voting rights Museum, the National Civil Rights Museum and many other historical places.
The trip corresponds with the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery march.
The cost for the trip is only $400 plus the cost of meals. This includes transportation, lodging, and museum entrance fees. For students already paying full tuition (those carrying 12-17 credit hours), the trip cost is covered. For those who may surpass 17 credit hours, it is an extra $496.
Interested students can contact Tony Brown or John Sharp no later than November 10.
