BCHS Virtual Enterprise students with their chaperones in front of the White House in Washington, D.C. Students from Beach Channel High School's Virtual Enterprise program flew to Washington, D.C. in a trip sponsored by David Neeleman, Chief Executive Officer of JetBlue Airlines.

BCHS principal, Dr. David Morris, gave the students the educational opportunity, while the Colleen Dwyer, the principal's secretary, arranged a tour of the White House. Virtual Enterprise coordinator, Frances Shackelford, coordinated the entire trip and encouraged students to fly.

Amanda Ahern, Leroy Trammell Allen, Shalisa Caver, Paule-Harryelle Geffrard, Peter Getzoni, Lamont Goodhall, Jon-Ross McKenzie, Rula Nassar, Bobby Paige, Luz Perez and Rashida Rich traveled on May 2 to our nation's capital. They toured the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery, the Airforce Memorial, Ford's Theater and other historic sites.

For many students, the highlight of the trip was a tour of the White House. They viewed the portraits of presidents and first ladies that line the corridors and asked many questions regarding the history of the rooms they toured.

Emily Berman, Congressional Aide to Congressman Anthony Weiner, greeted the Virtual Enterprise students and their chaperones, Kathleen Edwards, and parents Sabrina Caver and Joann Glenn, at the U.S. Capital and provided a tour of the National Statuary Hall, Rotunda and the Chamber of the House of Representatives.
