Charleston Catholic High School Seniors Lindsey, Emma, Grace say they enjoyed watching the Inauguration in school today. Emma added, “This year for this election in particular our generation, well, some of us could vote and some of us couldn’t but I feel like we got to be involved and that holds a lot of importance for us.”
