Teens United College Campus Tour

April 5, 2013

Ten teenage residents of Anson Park Community spent their Spring Break on a 6 day, 5 night trip touring five college campuses in three states on a chartered bus.  These included Texas Tech University, the University of New Mexico, Santa Fe University of Art and Design, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, and the University of Northern Colorado.  "The teens had to complete 40 hours of community service, attend all fundraisers, and show positive behavior and character throughout the duration of this school year in order to fulfill requirements to attend this trip," said Ashley Parker, Anson Park Community Coordinator and facilitator of the tour. "This is an amazing group of teens who hustled to fulfill their requirements and brainstorm constantly for new fundraisers."  They raised a total of $3,475 to fund the trip through several fundraisers and cash donations from individuals.  To minimize the cost of the trip, they were able to stay at Montgomery Church of Christ in Alburqueque, New Mexico and with families in Eaton and Greeley, Colorado.
