Bronx Latin Seniors visit the White House

The invitation stemmed from letters written by the 12th grade Honors Civics class about issues ranging from gun violence, asthma, the minimum wage, and sexual assault laws. We could not be more proud of our seniors who attended the ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House and were able to end their time at Bronx Latin with such a memorable trip.

After our trip the students received a Letter from Obama, in which President Barack Obama wrote some inspiring words for our students, which you can read below along with seeing pictures from our trip where students were also able to visit the Supreme Court and US Capital Building as well!

Congratulations class of 2016 for being invited to the White House and getting to be a part of this wonderful experience.
