WAHS students, staff set for inauguration trip

A group of 25 students and their chaperones from Windom Area High School will leave for Washington, D.C. on Jan. 18 and will be in the nation's capital for the inauguration of President Barack Obama.

The trip was the idea of social studies teacher Bryan Joyce and will see a handful of students, ranging from freshmen to seniors and three foreign-exchange students, in Washington, D.C. Joyce told the Citizen that the 25 students and three chaperones will be among the anticipated crowd in the millions on the National Mall for the inauguration. Close-up tickets to the inauguration were not made available to the students.

In addition, the students will take in some of the historic sites of Washington, D.C., including the Iwo Jima memorial, the Smithsonian and the Holocaust Museum. The trip also may include a visit to the CBS News Washington bureau with a possible visit with long-time CBS Washington Bureau Chief Bob Schieffer, who had done an interview with one of the students going on the trip for a class project.

Joyce also told the Citizen that the trip will include visits with the area's Congressional contingent, including Rep. Tim Walz and Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

Attending the trips as chaperones will be all three of WAHS's social studies teachers -- Joyce, Sheryl Hanefeld and Steve Kuntz.

A full story on the social studies' trip to Washington, D.C. for the inauguration will appear in the Jan. 14 issue of the Citizen.
