NAPLES, Fla. - Seven students with seven different backgrounds will be making the trip to our nation's capital to take part in Monday's inauguration.
"It's kind of rare not a lot of people get to go to it," said Jimmy Fleming.
For some, it will be their first trip to Washington D.C., but they'll all share the same experience together.
"But I think it's going to be big and its going to be exciting and itll be nice to be a part of history being made," said Morgan Moses.
Government teacher, Mike Mansfield, has taken his students to D.C. before. Four years ago when President Obama was first sworn in.
"The inaugural is very important, it's our most solemn ceremony, its far more than just speeches and parades and parties. its of course a contract between the government and the people," said Mansfield.
Katrin Gndova has only been in the United States for the past year and a half. The Bulgarian student says she's looking forward to being a part of the excitement.
"For me it's something I've never even dreamed about so I'm really excited, it's emotional to see something like that. It's history, it's like we're all going to be a part of history in some way and we'll see it, we're going to be so close to it," said Gndova.
