The Dallas Police Athletic League collabarated with E.B. Comstock Middle School and organized a field trip to Southern Methodist University (SMU) and the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. The goal of the field trip was to expose students to a university campus and tour the presidential library. Various college choices and career opportunities were discussed throughout this mentoring activity.
The participants included 47 E.B. Comstock Middle School students, two teachers, two counselors, and three officers from Dallas Police Athletic League (Senior Corporal Bureatha Graham, Senior Corporal Kevin Masters, and Officer Larvtha Shepard). The participants learned about SMU History and President Bush’s personal experience as President of the United States.
DISD Board Trustee Bernadette Nuttall donated tickets and lunch for this extraordinary experience. The Dallas Police Athletic League would like to thank Mrs. Nuttall, SMU staff, and Dallas Independent School District, for their support throughout this educational adventure.
