When asked why plan this trip, Ms. White says, “So that my students would have a better understanding of primary sources and artifacts as it relates to history.” About 90 students attended. Museum staff members thought that our students were the best they’ve seen yet! The students watch the IMAX documentary “Beyond All Boundaries” narrated by Tom Hanks.

|Drum Line||Did you know that there are 13 drummers on the Truman Tigers Drum Line? The drum line’s first performance was the pep-rally in August. They also marched miles in Mardi Gras parades in February, such as Thoth. The drummer who is charge of directing the band is the drum major, Andres Lara. When asked why drum lime is so important, Mr. Davis, the drum line head, said, “The reason that the drum line is so important is because they keep the tempo for the band to march and the dancers to dance.” According to Mr. Davis, Kyron Rodgers is the most improved drummer. If you’re good at ‘pencil beats’ try out for drum line! You may have a hidden talent and could one day receive a college scholarship for that talent!|
