Gear Up Trip To Chicago

On the first weekend in May, the GEAR UP Des Moines team took 26 students to Chicago for an extended college visit and tour weekend.  Four Scavo HS students attended and visited Chicago State University, The Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier, and the Museum of Science and Industry.  For some extra Chicago flavor we visited Gino’s East for their famous deep dish pizza.  Many of the students had never been to Chicago, so it was a great experience for them to visit the 3rd largest city in the US.  As an advisor, I am always impressed by how well our students represent both themselves and our district.
