John and Nancy Weir


They’re teachers turned travel professionals – and it all started with a postcard. John was invited to take his Mount Pleasant High School class to Washington, D.C. He hadn’t traveled much before, except to his uncle’s farm. He took that trip and it changed his life. John and Nancy resigned from teaching to start Scholastica Travel Inc. Over the next 40 years, that one trip led to thousands. Scholastica Travel has been honored to help countless people, like John, experience life beyond their hometown.
