What better way is there to learn about the history of our country than to visit its more-than-two-century-old Capitol? One can practically see the ghosts of generations past throughout the city, as if stepping back in time. Walking the streets and halls that once held some of the most powerful and influential people in the world, the people who created the country we live in today – no textbook can compare.

NRHEG students had the opportunity to witness all of this themselves in a recent four-day, three-night trip to Washington, D.C.

Ellendale hosts forum on human trafficking in rural Minnesota

Minnesota is one of the nation’s 13 largest centers for the prostitution of children. These children are sex trafficking victims. When you know the truth, you can make the difference.

Traffickers lure victims into exploitative situations by preying on their hopes to improve their lives and the lives of their families. They often promise a chance for a better life – a good job, a loving relationship, or new and exciting opportunities. In other cases, traffickers kidnap victims and use physical and psychological violence to control them, forcing them into labor or sexual exploitation.
