Eight Southwood High School students witnessed Donald Trump sworn in as the United States’ 45th President on Friday, Jan. 20.
The eight, who saw the inauguration from the National Mall instead their television screens, said the experience was “indescribable.”
From Jan. 17-22, SHS AP Government teacher Shelly Faust chaperoned students Paul Farlow, Haleigh Snyder, Parker Mays, Lucas Topliff, Allen Warren, Emily Benner, Kyrstin Gouveia and Nikita Jacobs, who all agreed it was surreal being a part of history.
“It was indescribable,” Gouveia told The Paper of Wabash County after returning to Indiana Sunday morning, Jan. 22. “There’s such a rich culture and history there and the inauguration is history in the making so knowing you’re a part of that and you were there, you can tell that to anybody in the future."
