Willamette Academy Students Attend the Oregon Governor Inauguration

Thanks to the efforts of Representative Brian Clem, two Academy students were invited to the state capitol on January 10th, 2011, to attend the inauguration of Oregon Governor, John Kitzhaber. A junior from McNary High School and a sophomore from West Salem High School were present as the governor was sworn into office during the historical event. “It was an honor to be there and be able to see all the important political figures and the inauguration process. It makes me want to be a part of it”, said one of the students in attendance.
