Thirty three of HHS’s superior Senior class members, traveled to the Oklahoma State Capitol, along with their History teacher, Mrs. Marie Parrish and principal, Joshua Faulkner and several members of Hennessey United. This is an annual field trip sponsored by the members of Hennessey United as a partnership with HHS for a leadership program.
The Seniors were met by Rep. Mike Dobrinski and Senator Chuck Hall. The dignitaries and their staff allowed the students to explore the capitol and take a tour. The students were also allowed to have a seat in a senators’ chair in the Senate Chambers.
Lunch was provided by Hennessey United and students toured the capitol museum and shopped at the capitol gift shop. Several of the students had one on one conversations with Rep. Dobrinski found that he genuinely saw them as constituents. All in all, it was a capital day! Photos by Jude Hestand
