24 Immokalee High Students At Presidential Events
IMMOKALEE, FL. -- Four students from The Immokalee Foundation were interviewed in Immokalee this week for national news broadcasts scheduled to appear on CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley on Friday, Jan. 20, and CBS Sunday Morning on Jan. 22.
The students discussed with CBS Correspondent Steve Hartman their expectations for the presidential inauguration, which they are attending with a group of 24 students – sponsored by The Immokalee Foundation – who are traveling by bus to Washington, D.C., to witness Friday’s swearing-in ceremonies.
“For many students in the group, this is their first trip out of Immokalee and Southwest Florida,” said Steven Kissinger, executive director of The Immokalee Foundation. “Witnessing such a historic event will not only be an incredible educational opportunity, but also a cherished memory for their lifetimes.”
