Recently, Mrs. Foster & Ms. Snyder took 9 of the Washington High School (WHS) Learning Strategies students on a field trip to Indian Hills Community College (IHCC) in Ottumwa. The students had a tour of the campus and dorms, were given information about scholarships & programs the school offers and were treated to a fantastic lunch prepared by the IHCC Culinary students. Students were separated into two groups: Health Science Program & Arts/ Sciences Program. The Indian Hills Health Science Program includes: Radiology, Nursing and many other health related programs. Emilee M (a Washington student who was part of the group) plans on attending IHCC in the fall to study Nursing. Her plan is to become a Diabetic Educator. The Arts & Sciences Program includes Liberal Arts, Criminal Justice and Culinary Arts just to name a few. Several students were treated to a one-on-one session with the Head Chef of the Culinary Arts program where questions were answered about the program & school. Everyone enjoyed the experience of visiting a college. Several expressed interest in programs that are available at IHCC. Mrs. Foster has plans for another college visit this spring to Cedar Rapids. In attendance were: Taylor A, Mark B, Kimberly G, Isabel G, Darious K, Emilee M, Diego M, Keifer P and Christina S. Pictured here are a few of the students.
