A local high school student will be attending President Obama's inauguration.

Alex Grossman, a sophomore at North High School, was invited to be a part of the Inauguration of the President of the United States of America, because of his involvement in numerous community organizations.

Grossman, along with other outstanding high schools students from across the United States, will embark on a five-day trip to Washington D.C. to take part in the High School Presidential Inaugural Conference, a program that provides students with a deeper understanding of the history behind the electoral process and the rich traditions surrounding the Presidential Inauguration.

During the program, Grossman and the other students will have the opportunity to interact with historians, political experts and leading decision makers to discuss campaign strategy and presidential politics. Students also will attend a special viewing party and luncheon where they will watch the grandeur of the inaugural parade as the president, vice president and their families make their way from the U.S. Capital Building to the White House. In addition, students also will attend an exclusive Gala Inaugural Celebration just for them.

Grossman has invited to take part in the program because of his active involvement in multiple community organizations, including the National Young Scholars Program, Youth Resources and the National Youth Leadership Program in Boy Scouts of America.
