Southlake teacher plans to climb Mount Kilimanjaro
During her trip, Loewen will bring with her school supplies, collected by her sixth-grade class, to donate to a school in the village of Marangu Mbahe.
Kathy Loewen, a sixth grade math teacher at Eubanks Intermediate School, plans to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in January.
Not only that, but Loewen has involved her class in the trip by having them collect school supplies to donate to a small school in the village of Marangu Mbahe at the base of the mountain.
Loewen, who is also a marathon runner, tells the Southlake Times, “I loved the idea because I have done several climbs before. But I had obviously never tried something as big as Kilimanjaro. We all did a lot of research on the Internet before finally making the decision to go.”
