BEEVILLE - Taylor Jones of Beeville is headed to Washington, D.C. in a couple of weeks to attend President Barack Obama's second inauguration.
The 18-year-old Senior at Beeville High School is ranked among the top of her class and, with the help of donors and VFW organizations, she can now afford the trip.
The teen says it will be her first time to take such a long trip all on her own, but she's excited for the chance to witness history with her own eyes.
Tonight on KRIS 6 News at 6 and Action 10 News at 6 p.m. you'll hear from Taylor as she gets ready for the trip and tells us what earned her the honor.
