HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) -

As the 45th president of the United States of America took the oath of office on Friday to serve our nation for the next four years, many young minds walking the halls of Huntington High School witnessed the historic event.

"I think it's an amazing opportunity that we get to watch the inauguration, when our grandparents didn't get to watch this whenever they were our age. I think it's an opportunity that not everybody gets,” said Courtney Coleman, a senior student.

As the eyes and ears absorbed the events unfolding in our nation’s capital, several students were eager to see the transfer of powers for the first time.

When many watched former President Barack Obama welcome the now-President Donald Trump, one student concluded the transition was a little bumpy.

As our new leader started his role in the Oval Office, a freshman wanted to remind people this is a time to unite our nation no matter what side you are on.

"When it comes time for the president to take office, I think it's time that we come together and work together to make a better nation,” said Ethan Collins, a freshman at Huntington High School.
