Modoc High School Upward Bound Program Embarks on Educational Field Trip to Cal Poly Humboldt

Seventeen eager students from Modoc High School’s Upward Bound Program recently embarked on an enriching field trip to Arcata, California. Led by Upward Bound advisor Chantz Witt and Aid Kenadee Witt, the students had the unique opportunity to stay in the dormitories at Cal Poly Humboldt, offering them a firsthand glimpse into college life.

The field trip was a part of the Summer Program, designed to prepare students for higher education and broaden their horizons. During their stay, the students explored the scenic Cal Poly Humboldt campus, familiarizing themselves with its resources and academic environment. This visit provided valuable insights into university life, helping to demystify the college experience and inspire the students’ future academic pursuits.

In addition to their time at Cal Poly Humboldt, the group also visited the College of the Redwoods. This allowed them to compare different higher education institutions and understand the variety of options available to them. These campus visits were complemented by excursions to various local beaches, where the students enjoyed the natural beauty of the Northern California coast.

A highlight of the trip was a visit to the Sequoia Park Zoo. This outing not only offered a fun and educational experience but also underscored the importance of biodiversity and conservation. Throughout the trip, the students engaged in discussions and activities that emphasized the significance of environmental stewardship.

Overall, the field trip was a resounding success, providing Modoc High School’s Upward Bound students with an unforgettable educational experience. Advisor Chantz Witt and Aid Kenadee Witt played a crucial role in ensuring the trip was both informative and enjoyable, helping to spark a passion for learning and exploration in the next generation of college-bound students.

Upward Bound and Modoc High School are thankful for the support of Superintendent Tom O’Malley and the MJUSD Board for their continual support in our goal of offering opportunities for our students to find their callings and life paths. 

MHS Principal Kristen Budmark had this to say, “One of our main priorities at MHS is providing opportunities that embrace all students. We want to ensure that every student has a place on our campus to grow and thrive. Upward Bound is one more piece of the overall puzzle that offers those opportunities both on and off campus. I am so proud of the direction we are going. Our students are blessed.”
