MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — Students of the Marquette Catholic High School Class of 2020 were invited to embark on a World War II themed excursion during their senior year spring break where they will have the opportunity to tour London, Normandy, and Paris and trace the steps of allied soldiers during the war.

The trip will present the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and is made possible thanks to the efforts of Marquette Catholic High School officials and Education First Educational Tours.

The plans for the senior-only trip were announced on Thursday by President James White. 

Students will embark on their cultural excursion which will last 9 days from March 21 through March 29, 2020.
