School textbooks are boxed up as members of Project 18 in Aspen prepare to ship the books to the community of Ignacio Zaragoza in Chihuahua, Mexico. The books represent part of a cultural exchange that developed after several school trips to the Mexican community by Aspen Middle School students, led by teachers Peter Westcott and Matt Fields. As a bonus, many of the textbooks are printed in Spanish. Project 18, sponsored by Snowmass Chapel, is a group that helps families raise kids by building character.
