   Rod Schaaf, Bothell High School teacher, and Scott Miller, Dale Hedden, Bob Connell, and Mel Kolstad, all teachers at Woodinville High, recently took part in a two-day Educator Tour of Fort Bliss Army Post in El Paso, Texas.

   The tour, sponsored by the U.S. Army Recruiting Command, was a way for educators to learn more about the Army so that when they are helping young people make decisions about their future, they will have a more informed idea of what serving in the Army is like and what it offers.
