Another BE grad, Steven Murphy, who was the editor in chief of the Eagle Times two years ago, is also working with Pingree's office in Washington and attended the inauguration. Steven, who attends American University in Washington D.C. and is majoring in journalism and international relations, was part of the group of 11 BEHS students who made the trip to Barack Obama's first inauguration four years ago. He said his first trip, as a sophomore, was more exciting, but that he enjoyed being closer to the action this time.
In addition, Ms. Peg Maxwell, Bonny Eagle art teacher, also watched the Inauguration live from the Mall. We caught up with her Sunday night, gave her our extra tickets, and watched the Patriots (lose) together at a local restaurant down the street from the Capitol.
