On June 24th, sixteen participants from the Educational Talent Search program at Rich Mountain Community College took an educational road trip to Little Rock, Arkansas. The rising sophomores from seven area schools represented Polk, Scott, and Montgomery Counties who went of the trip. The students toured the historic Central High Museum where they learned about the Little Rock Nine, the teenagers who were the first black students to be integrated into an all-white high school in 1957. The students also toured the Clinton administration as well as artifacts, famous documents, and a special Chihuly art exhibit.
