Hope for the Future: One Boy's Inauguration Journey
Loizos Karaiskos, a 5th grader at Silvermine Elementary School in Norwalk, Conn., was one of 2,900 middle school students participating in the Junior Presidential Youth Inaugural Conference from January 16-21. The students, who came from all over the country, were chosen to participate in the program because of their academic achievements, leadership skills, and school involvement. Education Week followed Loizos as he participated in inauguration events and educational activities during his visit to Washington. Part of special Inauguration '09 coverage.
