Three Penn seniors have been selected as counselors on a trip to Italy courtesy of Parade Magazine. The three student athletes are (from left) Erica Childs, a psychology major in the College of Arts and Sciences; John P. Bishop, a finance major at the Wharton School; and Erica's twin, Tara A. Childs, an environmental studies major in the College of Arts and Sciences. Bishop and Tara Childs were Academic All-Ivy selections last fall.

The three will accompany award-winning youngsters from throughout America on the Young Columbus Adventure to Italy March 31 through April 8. Young Columbus is an all-expenses-paid trip for award-winning youth who are newspaper carriers or have demonstrated excellence in Newspaper in Education programs.
