This year marked On the Road’s fifth trip to the Pueblo community, and schools like Desert Sage Elementary, located in the nearby city of Pueblo West, have participated for all five years.  For Desert Sage student Makenna, a 10-year-old Accountant in the Snack Shop, this five years of participation means that she heard all about Young AmeriTowne from her older sisters.  “My sister Jaden was an Accountant in Towne Hall when she was here, and I think my sister Ayana was a Technician,” said Makenna.  “Jaden really helped me understand how to be an Accountant!”  Makenna’s mother Cindy was volunteering in the TV Station a few shops away, and she echoed this excitement.  “This program had a huge impact, especially on my daughter Ayana.  AmeriTowne takes learning out of the classroom and into the real world.  Ayana still talks about making a budget and saving money.”
