50 Buffalo School Students will Attend Inauguration

Buffalo, NY – A group of Buffalo Public School students will be attending the Inauguration of Barack Obama on Tuesday. About 50 students from Bennett High School and School 31 in Buffalo will be boarding a bus early Monday morning.

Seniors from Bennett say they are ready to witness history as Obama takes the Oath-of-Office. 17 year old Breanna Cunningham says she never expected to see an African American selected as a President. Cunningham and her classmate, Raydale Thomas say Obama serves as a great role model for their generation.

The Bennett students raised $200 on their own to help pay for the trip. The Bennett High School Alumni Association kicked in the rest of the money for the senior class trip.
