Take a bow, sponsors of education

Mike Mahedy forwarded me a list of donors who helped send more than 300 students to the state Capitol on a civics field trip that included question-and-answer sessions with Sen. Lois Wolk, Assemblywoman Cathleen Galgiani and Lt. Gov. John Garamendi.

Since the Tracy Unified School District didn't pay a dime for the trip, private contributors footed the bill. The following people and businesses should take a bow for giving local students a close-up look at their state government:

• Donald Storer and Storer Coachways
• Tracy American Legion James McDermott Post 172
• Andrew Trosien, DDS
• Dr. Donald Ringer
• Dr. and Mrs. James Franco
• James Hallen and Sonic Interiors
• Tim Koehler
• Charles Hill
