If you missed Cemetery Tours last night, then you missed something special! The Freshmen SCOPE students were fantastic. Shout out to upperclassmen Brekken Modori and Henry Vrtis for the amazing job they did preparing and mentoring the Freshmen. When they said the program is entirely student-led, they were not kidding. This was a great bunch of students putting on the program for the community. The parents of these kids should be proud! ... See MoreSee Less
