Palo Alto Students Blog About Inauguration Travels

Original post made by Wes Rapaport, Midtown, on Jan 18, 2013

The Media Center's Youth Video Corps (YVC) is in Washington DC for the Inauguration. The five students, Nitya Kasturi and Dakota Baker from Gunn High School, Alec Furrier and Kenny Jones from Palo Alto High School, and Caroline Clark of Woodside Priory, worked alongside former Palo Alto Mayor Yiaway Yeh to create videos with the City of Palo Alto to inform the community about important issues. The Democratic Municipal Officials took interest in the YVC and invited the students to travel to document various parts of the Inauguration. Congresswoman Anna Eshoo graciously provided tickets to the Inauguration ceremony, and Southwest Airlines generously donated airline tickets. The Media Center's Becky Sanders and intern Wes Rapaport are in Washington with the students to facilitate production. Over the next several days, the YVC students will share their stories through regular blogging.
