Close Up is a club that explores the government and how it works. Members of this club recently had the chance to go to Washington D.C. to see our government “Close Up”. On their trip, they got to go to the Lincoln Memorial, the Holocaust museum, Arlington Cemetery, Capitol Hill, and they even had the opportunity to meet both Utah senators!
“We got to meet a bunch of kids from other states, so we got to learn more about different cultures from other states. It made me want to be involved more with our government after learning everything they do,” said Stefanie Muhlestein. “It was so fun, everyone that went had fun, and it is probably one of the best things I’ve done.”
Close-Up Participants: Stefanie Muhlestein, Jesika Celbrowski, Tressa Betts, Caitlyn Banks, Kylee McKell, Shelby Beckstrom, Allie Hughes, Kambri Shenk
