Local Students Offer Their Thoughts on Inauguration Proceedings

From our nation's capital to the classroom, Godby High School students bare witness to history in the making as President George W. Bush officially begins his second term in office.

Trinity Weaver, a ninth grader at Godby, says, "Think it is pretty neat to because we can see history take place."

With the inaugural events echoing in the background, teacher Carol Mosteller maps out the executive branch of government using the inauguration as a lesson come to life.

The first inauguration since the September 11th attacks puts security at an all time high. Students say seeing Secret Service agents line the motorcade drives home our nation's current state of being.

Student Brittany Letchworth says, "[I’m] really interested in his plans for Iraq, excited to see what he will do over the next four years."
