Close Up:  For close to 40 years, Vianney students have enjoyed going on a week-long trip to Washington, D.C. to participate in a program called Close Up.  This year will be no different.  On February 10th, a plane will take this year’s participants to the capital to interface with students from all over the country, and with members of our federal government, in a week-long study of our government in action.    There will be a meeting for any Sophomore, Junior or Senior who is interested in going to Washington, D.C. for this experience on Tuesday  during Encore in Room 102.   The cost of the program will be discussed at this meeting.
