School board rejects senior trip to Hawaii
The Nevada Daily Mail is reporting the Bronaugh Board of Education rejected a proposal to take a senior trip to Hawaii.
Ninety percent of the district's graduating class will be going on the senior trip, according to the article. The other student is staying home.
From the article:
Susan Ricketts, a science teacher at Bronaugh and a sponsor for the seniors' trip came to the meeting because she said there had yet to be a final decision on where the students could go for their trip.
The class of 2016 gave Ricketts their top three destinations: Hawaii, Florida and lastly, Alabama. She needs to have the itinerary for the trip finished by the end of December.
Ricketts told the board they had $6,000 and there are seven high school basketball home games left where students can raise money and then middle school games. Because they make about $750 a game, she said she expects to make about $22,000 to spend on the trip.
After deliberating the topic, Saundra Bogart, the board secretary made the motion to keep the students in the continental United States. The motion passed 6-1 with board member Chris Baker voting "no."
"I just don't see why we need to restrict it," He said.
