    Students from Methuen High School will become part of history. 

    Thursday morning the group embarked on their journey to Washington, D.C., for President-Elect Trump's Inauguration.

    "We are so excited. I'm so glad that we actually got to do it because it was just an idea at one point and it's actually following through and its tomorrow," said senior Ravyn Dallaire. 

    Nika Nyugen is also a senior and said, "I love politics after taking AP Government last year I fell in love with it." 

    A group of 36 students and four teachers is making the historic trip, they didn't think twice about. 

    "My hope for the kids is they just go down with an open mind," said Judy Scannell, the superintendent of schools. 

    One of the student chaperones is social studies teacher Tim Osgood. He said seeing a presidential inauguration is a once in a lifetime chance for some of his students. 

    "Being able to see their expressions I think is what I'm looking forward to most," said Osgood. 

    The trip was planned over the course of about a year. Students said no matter which candidate won the election they were going to witness history. 

    "I can't wait to be in the crowd and just see what happens," said Nyugen. 

    Dallaire said, "We're going to see something totally unexpected." 

    With hours of planning the itinerary is complete and they have important logistics to keep in mind. 

    "When are we getting up, where are we going, where are we meeting," said Osgood when reviewing the checklist. 

    "We want to make sure we're always together," said Dallaire. "We want to make sure it's a secure thing."
