From left, Brooklyn Kimball, Davin Mason, Darrin LeClair, Madisyn Buck and Madeline Hallett sit in front of the Capitol during their trip to Washington, D.C., as part of the Telstar Freshmen Academy. The Telstar freshmen received a “hands-on, out-of-their-seats learning experience,” said professional educator Norm Greenberg of the 4-H Learning Center in Bryant Pond. Freshmen toured the United States Capitol, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the National Zoological Park, the Botanical Gardens, Union Station and the Smithsonian Museums of Air and Space and Natural History. They also took a sunset walkabout of the monuments and memorials on the National Mall. (School Administrative District 44 photo)
