Eastern Calhoun Early College students advanced on an escapade through Albion.
First enjoying Albion’s Lopez Tacos House, the ECEC union then received a history lesson about the Gardner House Museum in downtown Albion. Collectively, we learned about the how the house has exchanged hands and became deteriorated with time and usage and eventually lead to abandonment. The Albion Historical Society has graciously restored the historic house with plenty of accuracy and donations from all over the country. Back to back, the ECEC group next toured the Bohm Theatre. The group saw the back stage, the second part of the theatre, and listened to the history and the remodeling process that made the Bohm what it is today. ECEC quickly transferred its’ attention to Albion’s Economic Development Corporation. E.D.C. serves the communities by inviting other businesses and industries to the Albion area to stimulate the economy. Early college students learned that this particular job works from a political standpoint, which requires tedious reading, writing, and comprehension skills to file for grants to allow the city of Albion to show an exuberant growing economy. This is just one of the ECEC group trips to experience other forms of careers that might appeal to our eyes and future, and a chance to be involved in our community.
