Inauguration Preview

Many Chicago-area students are heading to the nation’s capitol to celebrate President Obama’s second inauguration. 

 

After last-minute rehearsals Friday night, 54 young people representing the South Shore Drill Team hit the road. The group was selected to perform in the Presidential Inaugural Parade.

 

 The $45,000 trip almost did not happen, but people all over the city opened their wallets to support the trip. 

 

“It means everything, ” said team member, Tamisha Dorsey. “I don’t know how to explain it. I’m so happy.”
