Daybreak Nation on Location: Lordstown students head to Inauguration

LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Katie was at Lordstown High School Tuesday morning before students left for Washington, D.C.

A group of about 17 students boarded a bus to Washington, D.C. for the Inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

The trip is the final leg of the Lordstown Political History Club’s 2016 journey through the process of electing the nation’s 45th president.

Students will hit the ground running Tuesday with a tour of the monuments in Washington, D.C. They will also visit several other venues including, Capitol Hill, the Library of Congress, the U.S. Supreme Court, and Ford Theater, before the Inauguration on Friday.

Senior Maya Kresic said she is excited to attend the Inauguration of Donald Trump even though she worked on the Bernie Sanders campaign and then Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

“It’s amazing. Even though Trump wasn’t my candidate, it is so cool to think that I was there when he started. I was there at the first national debate. It’s amazing,” Kresic said.

The students traveled to Iowa for the caucus and followed the election throughout the year, attending rallies, debates, and other political events.
