Miller Visits DC



QUITE THE OPPORTUNITY. Parke Heritage High School, student, Cassie Miller recently spent a week in Washington, DC. It was a special opportunity that she was selected for through applications with the Parke County REMC. This is a special leadership conference with students representing most of the states in our country. They traveled by bus to the Flight 93 Memorial in Pennsylvania and then to Gettysburg. Additionally, the group toured the Smithsonian museums, Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, FDR Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, Iwo Jima, 9/11 Memorial, The Pentagon, Capitol Hill, Library of Congress, Air Force Museum, and Air Force Memorial. In addition to sightseeing during the day, Cassie attended group activities with students from all over the United States. The goal was to learn leadership skills. Some of the students, including Cassie, were encouraged to give speeches, and she presented one over Eleanor Roosevelt. (photo submitted)
