Warrensburg High School students belonging to the local chapter of the Junior State of America pose in front of the USS Constitution during a recent trip to Boston. The excursion featured a weekend of debating and sightseeing, chaperoned by Warrensburg high School teacher and club advisor Io Bruce. The group participated in various debates at the Northeast JSA’s 2011 Fall Convention, held in Boston’s historic Park Plaza Hotel. Discussions ranged from whether developing countries should be required to follow environmental policies to the quality of today’s pop music. The students also toured Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall, and climbed the 294 steps of the Bunker Hill Monument. The WCS students said the three-day trip was fun and educational, as they shared ideas with students from across the country and explored historic sites.
