On Fri­day, Oct. 19, White Rock eighth-grade stu­dents, along with teach­ers and staff Amy Dud­ley, Misty Am­brose, Tay­lor Walker and Jen­nifer Floyd, trav­eled to Jef­fer­son City.

The stu­dents be­gan their field-trip day with a tour of the State Ar­chives at the Sec­re­tary of State’s of­fice, where they were per­son­ally greeted by Sec­re­tary of State John Ashcroft. Ashcroft gave an in­ter­est­ing pre­sen­ta­tion to the stu­dents about the state ar­chives.

The stu­dents then toured the Capi­tol of Mis­souri, the his­toric State Pen­i­ten­tiary, and ended their day with a tour of the Supreme Court that in­cluded Judge Paul Wil­son speak­ing with stu­dents, teach­ers and staff. Ev­ery­one had a great day learn­ing about the dif­fer­ent as­pects of state gov­ern­ment op­er­a­tions.
