London & Northern France 2013.
Ana, Liz, Chelsea, Jessica, Maria, and Sandy were the third group of scholarship recipients from the Reed Foundation, whose generous grant sent all six CTEC students to London and Northern France for a free art study trip. Fellow CTEC student Maddison, former Reed Scholar Katie, along with Jake Yeager, Mr. and Mrs. Stragier, and Mrs. Tova Black as chaperones, joined in the adventure. We visited London, Canterbury, the D-day Beaches of Normandy, Mont St. Michel, St. Malo, Chartres, Versailles and Paris. Our tour director was Trevor and our tour company partner was EF Tours. See photos from our travels below.
Kenny Hunter’s "I Goat" sculpture stands as a symbol for the various waves of migration that have found sanctuary here and helped to shape it. As an image of persecution and sacrifice, it reflects how each successive group of immigrants have faced their own combination of conflict, oppression and poverty.
