The Star City High School Art Club recently visited sites in Texas in an educational field trip involving art, history, science, and physical education.

The trip marked the Art Club’s first field trip since 2019. A planned trip in 2020 to visit New Orleans was cancelled due to Covid-19. Attempts to reschedule that trip were unsuccessful due to covid-related restrictions, forcing the group to go west.

The trip included visits to Dallas, Arlington, and Fort Worth with guided tours of the Dallas Museum of Art, the George W Bush Presidential Center, and AT&T Stadium (home of the Dallas Cowboys).

The group also visited the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Medieval Times, El Fenix (oldest restaurant in Dallas), the Fort Worth Stockyards, Fort Worth Water Gardens, Six Flags Over Texas, Dallas Zoo, and Reunion Tower.

“Trips like these provide students with valuable educational opportunities to visit museums and historic sites,” said Roger Darren High. “Other school districts only allow these types of overnight and out of state trips for competitions. Thankfully the Star City administration and school board have allowed us to do these trips in order to provide the best possible education for our students.”

This was the 52nd educational field trip High has implemented for his students since he started teaching.

Chaperones for the trip included high school secretary Donna Smith, EAST lab teacher Lauren White Edwards, JAG teacher Brittney McGraw, and art teacher Roger Darren High.
