Spanish teachers Mr. Clay Sagers and Mr. Byron Jeppsen are leading a trip to Peru in the upcoming school year. This gives the students of Lowry High School a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to an exotic location.
“I’m looking forward to immersing ourselves in the culture,” said Sagers.
The most notable place they plan to visit is Machu Pichu, a 15th-century Inca citadel. Peru is known for having the start of the Amazon River and a vast cultural history. The trip will be approximately nine days long in mid to late July 2025 giving students and teachers alike something to look forward to in the next year.
“I’m looking forward to going to South America, I’ve never been before,” said Jeppsen.
Traveling is essential for students to dive deeper into learning about new cultures. Junior Lennox Zebroski went on the previous trip to Costa Rica and plans to attend the Peru trip.
“After I went on the trip to Costa Rica, I realized how helpful travel is in learning a language,” said Zebroski.
Close to 10 students are planning to go on the trip and learn more in-depth about Peru’s exotic culture.
