The Only Ten I See

On April 5-7th choir and orchestra students went on a field trip to Memphis. Not many schools get the opportunity of having such a fun trip especially to a place like Memphis, Tennessee.

“We pretty much did this exact same trip in 2018,” said Choir Director Courtney Gibson. “This time we did have a few little changes. Instead of going to Graceland we did the Civil Rights Museum which was a much better choice.” 

While in Memphis choir and orchestra students did many different things such as seeing Wicked at the Orpheum Theatre, The Memphis zoo, Sun Records, Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid, a dinner cruise, and finally the Civil Rights Museum.

“Going to Memphis was so fun. I talked to a lot of friends I haven’t talked to for a long time and my overall favorite part was getting to see Wicked,” said freshman Kenneth Minion.

Going to Memphis with so many kids and to a lot of places can certainly be difficult and can change the way the entire trip goes very easily. All of the chaperones and teachers made sure it all went smoothly.

“I’ve been to many places with my family, but I’ve never been on a trip like this with so many kids. I’m just glad we had no problems,” said junior Orion Schaub.

After Memphis the students on the trip had a poll on what their favorite activity was and The Memphis Zoo won by a landslide. 

“We all split into groups and my group decided to ride around on these car animals the whole time,” said Schaub. “We were definitely slower than the people walking.”

The Memphis Zoo won, but that wasn’t the only favorite place students had. Many also talked about the dinner cruise they went on the second night of the trip.

“The dinner cruise was filled with dancing with the live band, but my absolute favorite part was that it was this couples 60 year anniversary and they danced too,” said junior Danika Nalepa.
