Raton’s full of heroes

Heroes of Discovery at the middle school

by Carol Bridge

RATON — The Annual Heroes of Discovery at Raton Middle School took place once again with 57 famous people showing up in the gym to tell us about themselves. All in costume and everyone an expert on the people that they represented, the fifth graders of Raton performed their roles most excellently. We had everyone from Ben Franklin to Pocahontas, John Glenn to Susan B. Anthony in town for the day. For weeks they have been memorizing facts and putting together some terrific costumes in preparation for the day. Thank you teachers and thank you fifth graders! Photo by Shelby Miller Padilla
