Jordan Aguirre is one of the 21 high school students who will be attending the Inauguration, but the trip hold very special meaning for him.
Aguirre says he followed the election closely, and can especially relate to Obama's story.
"I was born into poverty," states Aguirre, " and I know he wasn't the most privileged person.
He says its good to see that hard work and dedication can get you even into the highest position in the country.
Teacher, David Ring, says this trip will give the students something they cannot get from a textbook.
This trip will show the students exactly how laws are passed and how our government work.
Aguirre hopes that this will only be the beginning steps toward one of his greatest dreams.
"I want to be a governor, or senator, or something," remarks Aguirre remarks, "so going to DC and seeing the Nation's capital is something you have to do before you become a politician."
U.S. Congressman, Randy Neugebauer, acquired 24 tickets for the students and their chaperones to see the event at the capitol.
