Topeka High Students Tour Colleges During Spring Break

Each year, during spring break, a  group of TPS staff members give up their break to take interested students on an "Annual Historical Black College Tour." Students who attended this year were able to tour

  • Lemoyne-Owen and Lane Colleges in Tennessee
  • Mississippi Valley, Jackson State and Alcorn State in Mississippi
  • Dillard and Xavier University in New Orleans, Louisiana

While on the trip, students also visited the French Quarters, enjoyed a Cajun meal on the Natchez Queen River Boat, and attended a Hornet v. Celtic basketball game.

Eight staff members, one retired staff member and 46 students participated in this year's tour.
