Acworth’s Expanding Horizons Program sets its sights on the nation’s capital next month during spring break. Funded by a private benefactor, Expanding Horizons uses the local schools to identify underprivileged students which will be taken on one educational field trip per month throughout the school year.
For 12 lucky participants, they will spend four days in Washington, D.C. during spring break visiting the numerous national monuments and historic landmarks. The trip is geared to provide them the immeasurable educational opportunity to visit the nation’s capital, increase their knowledge of American history, and develop memories they have for a life time.
