HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
TOUR HALL OF FAME MUSEUM
NOVEMBER 8, 2010 - Sixty 10th grade students from West Canada Valley High School in Newport, NY took a field trip to tour the Hall of Fame Museum today. The students recently read The Contender, Robert Lipsyte’s novel about a young boxer, in their English class and wanted to tour the Hall of Fame to learn more about the “sweet science.”
Along with six chaperones, the students enjoyed the many exhibits on boxing history, including those of George Foreman, Muhammad Ali, Carmen Basilio and Mike Tyson. They also marveled at the massive hand of former heavyweight champion Primo Carnera.
West Canada Valley High School students listen to Hall director Ed Brophy talk about the history of boxing.
