Students interested in participating in a nine-day tour of Ireland in June are invited to attend a meeting at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Wednesday) in the community room at Gila Community College.
Payson High School social studies teacher Kathleen Alexander-Young, who will chaperone the trip, will host the informational meeting.
Last summer, Alexander-Young and a contingent of 11 students participated in an educational tour of Europe.
The group traveled to Milan, Verona, Venice, Florence and Pisa in Italy. The students also visited Nice and Cannes in the French Riviera and spent several days exploring the wonders of Paris. According to Alexander-Young, one of the most memorable stops was the Piazza de Michelangelo that overlooks the art-rich Renaissance city of Florence.
The trip afforded the students the hands-on opportunity to see many of the historical sites they had read about and studied in world history classes.
