CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -
At Sulphur's LeBlanc Middle School, Ms. Baham's 7th grade classroom is filled with students. But not all of them can say this:
"I'm going to the presidential inauguration."
12-year-old Spencer Butts was nominated by his teachers for the Middle School Presidential Inauguration Conference. For him, attending inauguration is all about the ...
"Historic things. Because I'm really big into history. I love to see all the historic items," said Spencer.
This scholar was nominated for much more than his love for history.
"I'm the team captain of the robotics team. I'm like a junior officer for the student council. I'm treasurer of FCS and junior beta, and that's it," Spencer said.
"When we have someone that sets this example, hopefully the other students want to rise to the occasion and be like him and get the kinds of rewards and do the best that they can," said LeBlanc Principal, Joe David.
Spencer is not the only Southwest Louisiana youngster headed to DC for Monday's Inauguration. At Westlake's Westwood Elementary, 11-year-old Jillian Elliott will also be on the front lines of history.
"I mean it's the inauguration ... it's really hard to get into ... so you're in it," Jillian said. "That's just awesome."
Jillian is a People to People Ambassador. A privilege set aside for the nation's top students.
"I'm 4-H President, I'm BETA Vice President, I'm in French, I'm in chess," she said.
Jillian is most excited for "People to People's" exclusive inauguration ball.
"We get to dress up and do our hair and we get to go to a ball," said Jillian.
"She's very deserving," said Westwood teacher, Jessica Conrad. "I think it's showing people that hard work really does pay off. This is something that not a lot of children are going to get to experience and she gets to experience that because of her hard work."
