Last week, two juniors from Yap Catholic High School in Micronesia – Jamilyn Mooteb and Saralyn Wuyoch – traveled to the United States as part of the government-sponsored Close Up Program, which strives to inform and inspire students in classrooms near and far.

Jamilyn and Mooteb, along with their teacher, Mr. Pat Nolan, SJ, visited Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City. They also toured the campuses Georgetown University, the College of William and Mary, the University of Pennsylvania, and Drexel University. The trio also paid a visit to the New York Province office for some New York style pizza.

“Our students completely gave themselves to the experience,” said Pat Nolan, SJ, reflecting on the trip. “Participation in the Close Up program is a huge step toward preparing our students for the cultural transition they will face as they graduate Yap Catholic High School and attend top-notch colleges in the United States.”
