Middle School Students Watch Inauguration At USD

Posted: Updated:

The Peace and Justice Center at USD was the perfect place for some young San Diegans to watch the inauguration.

Students from Francis Parker Middle School crowded the auditorium to witness the historic moment. For these next-generation voters, the significance was not lost.

"it's a very historic moment. When I have children, I'll be able to tell them I was there when the first African-American president was inaugurated, so I am excited to see this," student Megan said. 

"It's going to make me feel that I can accomplish more now. Now I'm seeing an African-American president, maybe I can do something with my life," student Cory said.

Other students added that this was a day they'll never forget.
