Saturday fundraiser to support MCHS, CMS students bound for Costa Rica

If there’s one thing Patty Hebert wants students to learn from an upcoming trip to Costa Rica, it’s that a big world waits to be explored. “I just hope they have an incredible cultural experience,” said Hebert, 43, a Moffat County School District substitute teacher. “I hope that they gain a love and a knowledge of other cultures outside of Craig (and) outside the United States.” In early June, Hebert will lead three Moffat County High School students and two Craig Middle School eighth-graders on an excursion to the Central American country. The trip costs about $2,600 per student, and some participants have been working for more than a year to earn or save the money, Hebert said.
