Woodbridge students visit the Big Apple
Business education and accounting students at Woodbridge High School, Bridgeville, traveled to New York City May 2 to visit the financial center of the United States and to show their respect at the site of the World Trade Center towers. Students were able to add their names to the wall that holds messages from people around the world. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York was another stop on the trip. Students traveled five stories underground to view the world’s largest store of gold worth billions of dollars. The gold bars are stored in the bank’s vault carved from bedrock under the island of Manhattan. Through interactive exhibits, video tapes and lectures, students learned about the Federal Reserve System and about the making, transporting and storing of money. As a souvenir of their visit, they each received a packed cylinder of shredded United States currency. Rounding out their trip was shopping at South Seaport. Students on the field trip were Brian Rase, Sarah Dexter, Acuzena Martinez, Bobbie Davis, LeShaun Allen, Emilio Perry, Laura Mullins, Denisha Brown, Stacey Falkenheimer, Shannon Martin, Ryan Messick, T.J. Freer, Kimberly Sampson, Tiffany Selner, LeShaunda Allen, J.R. Longfellow, Corbin Bean, Faithe Parks, Markeisha Thompson, and Rochelle Daughterty. Accompanying them were teachers Elaine Spera and Yolanda Huston, counselor John Spera, driver Leroy Tingle and parent Bobby Davis.
