Honors Northeast students enjoy fall trip to Fort Worth
Honors students at Northeast Texas Community College recently traveled to Fort Worth for the program’s 21st semester day trip. The fall experience included stops at Starbucks, the Fort Worth Zoo, the Woodshed Smokehouse, the Fort Worth Cultural district museums, the Botanical Garden and Tarrant County College. These free trips, through the ongoing support of Drs. Jim and Paula Archer and other friends of NTCC, have become a standard feature of the honors program since 2008.
Those attending the trip (top to right and down to right) were Dr. Andrew Yox, Honors Director, Matthew Chambers, Cameron Anderson, Karsen Nelson, Suzie Perez, Academic Success Coach, Sebastian Martinez, Adriana Rodriguez, Jordan Whelchel, Laura Ross, Tyler Bernard, Dr. Mary Hearron, Cassidy Watkins, Raegan Davis, Chesney Davis, Warren Wu, Melonie Chamness, Yaritza Romero, Hannah Dickson, Yami Zuniga, Jazmin Garcia, Madison Blood, Rachel Jordan, and Jim Ward (not pictured), Biotex seminar professor.
The trip included a now-annual dinner and competition at Tarrant County College, a powerhouse of the Great Plains Honors Council, and rival of Honors Northeast. Last year, NTCC won the “dance battle,” but this year, in a giant Jenga competition, Tarrant was better prepared. Semester day trips are just one of many experiences available to Honors Northeast students. To learn more about the program, visit www.ntcc.edu/honors.
