These students went to coffee and chocolate plantations and did white water rafting, ziplining, hiking near a volcano, snorkeling and going to the beach, as well as many other fun activities.
All of the students had taken at least Spanish I and II classes, and included seniors Shannon Conroy, Abbey Hubbs, Alexis Smith, Hunter Johnson, Kira Jones and Marisa Nicol, as well as underclassmen Samantha Adkins, Elizabeth Feaster, Sara Nicol, Katelyn Harris, Jojo Renicker, Jacob Long, Grace Boerger and Mikayla Writesel.
