PSAA, AAA Take Joint History Tour

Judging from the enthusiastic responses from students and adults, the first annual Puget Sound Adventist Academy/ Auburn Adventist Academy Spring Tour was a success.

Instead of going home at spring break, students of both academies toured Washington, D.C., plus Ft. McHenry, Gettysburg, Williamsburg, Jamestown, Mt. Vernon and Yorktown.

Led by the veteran tour leader Shirley McIntyre from La Sierra University, participants were treated to a bountiful helping of hands-on history. McIntyre has done a number of tours for John Spano, AAA history teacher. Spano’s acquaintance with Howard Munson, PSAA history and Bible teacher, led him to invite PSAA to join Auburn in this venture. The PSAA group was delighted to have this opportunity to expand their knowledge of U.S. history.

Among the highlights was a special tour of the Pentagon that included a visit to the 9/11 memorial chapel.

“We should do more of these joint projects,” said Keith Hallam, AAA principal.
