THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - In schools across the nation, young eyes were glued television sets to watch Barak Obama's historic and memorable inauguration. At the Scholars Academy in Thomasville, teachers had their TVs on for the live coverage all morning.
Kids even got to eat lunch in the classroom so they wouldn't miss one second of the action at our nation's capitol.
"It's been a bit of an experience. I've never seen anything like that and to see something like that it's just very inspiring," said 6th grade student Stephanie Scott.
Young and old, black and white, everyone's eyes were glued to the TV as they watched the inauguration of the United States' 44th President. An event that will get it's own chapter in history books to come.
"It's the first African American President and I'll be able to tell my children I remember when Barak Obama became President," said 6th grade student Kyndra Young.
"It makes me feel more important. Because this is going down in history. This is a real big thing that everyone will remember for a lifetime. That we can share with our children and our children's children," said Scott.
Wise words for a 6th grader who said watching Barack Obama's dream come true today made her dreams seem a little closer to reality.
"That tells me that I should become something in life, and you can be anything you want to be," said Scott.
Inspiration that began at noon, January 20th, 2009.
The start of a new year, with a new leader, and with students who now believe anything is possible. Feedback
