The Teenage Republicans travelled to the George W. Bush Presidential Library at Southern Methodist University in Dallas on Dec. 12. Club members learned about Bush and his White House administration during their tour. They engaged in interactive political strategizing and listened as tour guides explained the significance of Bush’s presidency.

“I felt like it was really [fun] to go see the museum and library,” senior Hayden Fant said. “Any field trip to any of the [presidential] libraries would be good, but George W. Bush was very fitting [for the club].”

History teacher and Teenage Republican sponsor Lance Kyles planned the trip for club members.

“Mr. Kyles planned [the trip] and brought us all here,” president and senior Grant Rommel said. “The club really got to enjoy themselves and learn about the history of a member of the Republican party and how his policies shaped the country.

Although the club has visited the library in past years, this was the biggest group Kyles has taken to the Southern Methodist University campus.

“Initially, we didn’t think that we’d be able to bring that many people. We thought we’d only be able to bring four, maybe five [students],” Rommel said. “We’re really fortunate we got the opportunity to get a bus to bring more students with us.”

Teenage Republicans got to enjoy a day of learning and entertainment as they paid their respects to George H. W. Bush by donning ribbons on their shirts as they toured his son’s presidential legacy.

“The educational opportunity to be able to visit a museum with important historical significance within the 21st century was interesting,” Rommel said. “The fact that we got to appreciate a man’s service to our country [and] that we have something to keep that memory going is fantastic.”
