ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A group of students from Albany will witness history. 133 students, teachers nd parents plan to travel to Washington D.C. for the presidential inauguration in January.

The trip will be supplementing what students have already been learning about the government and election process. Teachers say this trip gives them another element especially because most of them have never been outside of Albany.

"Just the experience of it alone, of traveling outside of Albany, even the state of Georgia, into our nation's capitol in Washington D.C., I believe will expand our children's mindset," said coordinator, Sara Nisinger.

The students already planning to go are from Monroe High but the trip was being opened to all public schools. Anyone who would like to assist with fundraising for this trip can call 229-431-3316.
