The teachers volunteered their time at local hospitals following a fatal tour bus crash on state Route 12 near Bryce Canyon on Sept. 20. The tour bus was carrying 30 Chinese nationals, and the crash injured 12-15 individuals and killed four.

When Washington County School District heard about the tragedy, Marybeth Fuller, the district’s dual language immersion coordinator, said the teachers responded immediately, offering the victims food, comfort and translation services.
