Stockbridge students leave for inauguration

Posted: Updated:

A group of Stockbridge Elementary School students left Friday night for President Barack Obama's inauguration. Parents brought their children to the school packed up and ready to go.

Some parents said this was the first time their children will be far away from home without them. One father said even though he's nervous, he's glad his child will experience this opportunity.

"It's a great opportunity for all of the kids to go there to see what they're going to see and learn what they're gong to learn," said Larry Collingsworth.

Naomi Tate, 9, said she's also excited about going to the inauguration. But, when she was asked what it all means she said, "Umm, I really don't know what it means but, I know it's going to be cool though." 

The students will return home after the inauguration on Tuesday night.
