Charlie Serbus. flew with Ben to Washington but he wasn't able to attend the Inau- guration; instead Cbarlie stayed with a family friend. "We learned a lot about how the Electoral College works and lead- ership skills," Ben says. The disappointing part was the group didn't get to watch the Inauguration from as close as they thought. They were supposed to sit near the Smithsoniafi Institu- tion (about 10 blocks away from the Capitol), but for security rea- sons had to move to the Washing- ton Monument (about 15 blocks away). Despite this disappointment, Ben says "I thought it was a great moment and I was there." The group took part in many other activities. Ben says he went to the Air and Space Museum where he took pictures and saw several astronauts including Buzz Adlrin. Another activity was visiting the Newseum, a museum ded- icated to news. with a full-size news helicopter and a bullet-rid'- Above, Ben reviewed his photos and talked with Jacqui DuBois for this story.

The students were from all around (he country and Ben met a lot of kids his own age. His roommate Jake was from Maryland. Ben says he might go again sometime. As for the skills he has learned so far, in the future he said he's thought about working in the federal government. "It was very exciting for him," Ben's mother Ann Serbus says.
