Students attending Obama's inauguration

Twenty students from Athenian high school are flying to Washington, D.C., to attend Barack Obama's Presidential Inauguration. They are being led by teacher April Smock, chairwoman of Athenian School's Humanities Department. The group will leave Jan. 17 and return the evening of Jan. 21.

"They are all history students who have written essays about their desire to experience this historic event and their passion for the political process," said Smock in an e-mail. "We are all very excited for this trip."

The students are Regina Chang, Molly Fagan, Payton Gordon, Sarah Ingram, Connor O'Neill, Tina Solvik, Theo Vorster, Jackie Culkin, Kathrina Mathews, Julia Eiden, Sandra Loyola, Jared Madden, Dylan Smock, Kaitlin Plunkett Franklin, Cailie Reesor, Daniella Smith, Kristiana Meyer, Margaret Rowland, Meg McClure and Sarah Weinberg.
