LEAVENWORTH -- Eighth-grader Guillermo Espinosa dreams of flying to outer space. NASA can't promise him the moon, but the space agency has invited the Icicle River Middle School student and two other migrant education students from Washington to take a giant leap in that direction.

The students will fly to Huntsville, Ala., June 25 for a week, with all expenses paid, at the U.S. Space Academy, said Alejandro Vergara. He's the Space Academy coordinator in the Migrant Education Regional Office at the North Central Educational Service District in Wenatchee. Students from the Yakima and Anacortes districts will join Guillermo at the academy.
