KENNEWICK, Wash-- Across the country students in class put their pencils down and watched Obama's Inauguration. These seniors were in their government class where they've been following the election process closely.
Most of these high school seniors could not vote in this election, but never the less understand that a change in power could effect their future.
They all agree there dreams are achievable because they say if a black man can become president anything is possible.
"I'll probably be graduating from college in four years and he has a plan to lower education costs so that could affect me definitely," said Todd Cherry, Kamiakin Senior.
"It seems like he's going to try and just help our nation, guide us in the right direction that we are supposed to be. It's going to be something I'll tell my kids about," said Rachel Smith, Kamiakin Senior.
Almost all classes at Kamiakin and the Kennewick School District watched the inauguration Tuesday. It wasn't just students in the U.S. watching, but also students from Mexico and Canada.
