Off To See Presidential History

Christian Woodell, freshman from Farmington High School, leaves Saturday for Washington, D.C. and the Inauguration of Barack Obama as the nation’s 44th president. In addition to seeing the inauguration and parade as part of the Inaugural Scholar Program, he will attend seminars with speakers who include Luke Russert, son of the late NBC News Political Director Tim Russert; General Colin Powell, former Secretary of State; and Former Vice-President Al Gore. Wooddell will also attend an inaugural ball at the Air and Space Museum. He said if he had 15 minutes with the new president he has no idea what he’d ask. “I’d probably be in awe and a little shocked.” – Daily Journal file photo
