Thomas Kannam of Durham, a third grader in Mrs. Betty Hadlock's class at John Lyman School, was an eyewitness to history along with his family.
The Kannam's were in attendance at the Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C. on Monday, January 21. The highlight of the day, according to Thomas, was shaking President Obama's hand at the Inaugural Prayer Service at St. John's Episcopal Church in the morning before the swearing in ceremony.
"It was a totally awesome and unforgettable day!," said Thomas during an interview on John Lyman's WJLS news broadcast on Friday by fourth grade reporter, Olivia Hesseltne.
