TRUSSVILLE — A group of travelers from Trussville spent spring break crisscrossing the countryside between two of the world’s most historically rich countries of Italy and Greece.
The group was comprised of four Hewitt-Trussville Middle School students: Julian Collins, Sydney Collins, Camden DeSimone, and Walter Mason, plus two parents, Loukisha Collins and Phil DeSimone.
Kathy Troncale, an eighth grade teacher at the middle school, was the group’s leader.
“There is no better education than traveling overseas because students learn through experience,” Troncale said. “They are immersed in a global classroom of history, geography and language.”
The trip was not school sponsored, instead in collaboration with EF Tours, a 50-year-old educational travel company.
Troncale is planning a new trip abroad for June 2016. For more information on that trip, email Troncale at GTroncale@centurylink.net.
