They decided they wanted to go last year, and have been working hard fundraising to be able to go see this historical event. "I'm going to witness History in the making"  stated one student, Kaeli Powell.   "I get to see the first African American President in person" staed another student Ty Dunlap.


They've washed hundreds of cars, sold Christmas wreaths, had dinners and bake sales, and wrote letters to businesses. Some kids picked up jobs over the summer to save up money to be able to go. One student is able to go with a grant from Migrant Education of Butte County. They get to see the inaugural speech, inaugural parade, the many sights and museums of Washington DC and New York, a live Broadway musical, and attend an inaugural ball over a total of seven fun-filled days. "I look forward to seeing the Vietnam War Memorial so I can read all the names of the  people who fought for our freedom."  stated Diego Montez (7th grade).
