Anchors Travel to Chicago
By Chantel Eubanks
The Guntersville High School Anchor Club traveled to Chicago for the International Anchor Convention on July 3, 2019.
Anchors from all around the world got together and participated in group activities and ice breakers to get to know one another. We got to meet other Anchors who had the same passion of helping others and our communities as we do.
There were multiple speakers come talk to us about our future and how we can become leaders in this world. We traveled to Navy Pier on the 4th of July and ate dinner and watched the beautiful fireworks!!
In the time we were in Chicago, we tried the famous deep dish pizza and also traveled to Millennial Park to see the giant bean!! Chicago was a fun experience and I am so excited for the International Anchor Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, next year!!!
