Van Burens 8th grade trip to Washington D.C. was nearly canceled after the company handling the trip went bankrupt. Discovery Tours filed for bankruptcy and canceled all of the tours they had scheduled. Superintendent Tim Myers said they managed to find a new company to help make the trip possible. He added that they helped figure out where the money from Discovery Tours went.
