Last fall Tara Harmon, sophomore, got to hike Machu Picchu. This year Harmon will be going on a cruise to Jamaica, Haiti, and Mexico. She can’t wait to see these new places and have time to de-stress.
“I’m most excited to relax on the boat,” Harmon said.
Cooper Cecil, sophomore, will also be going to Mexico and taking a particular interest in marine life.

Sophomore Caroline Todd, will be traveling to Germany and Austria.
“I’m most excited to see Dachau, It’s the second largest concentration camp. I’ve also been so interested in the Holocaust because it’s been my favorite thing to learn about since elementary school,” Todd said.
And of course, many students will be staying in the warmth of their beds for a majority of the week.
“I’ll probably sleep when I’m at home cause all of my friends will be gone,” junior Leah Englert said.
