Students also enjoyed a Segway tour of Downtown Winston-Salem and a play at the Little Theatre in Winston-Salem.

As part of their West Scholarship, students are required to visit schools on their cultural trips.  This time students visited Paisley IB Magnet School in Winston-Salem and were very impressed by the faculty and administration as they work with a challenging student population.

West Scholars participating in the Fall Retreat were Zachary Alford, Braden Asbury, Carly Boileau, Kaitlin Koons, Megan Smith, and Collin Weatherman.  They were accompanied by Dr. Karen Lucas and Mrs. Teresa Weddington.
