An Oliver Springs youth gets to witness history first hand next week in Washington, D.C.
Dillon Shelton, 14, an Oliver Springs Elementary School eighth-grader, will be involved in the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th U.S. president.
Shelton is attending as a participant with the Junior Presidential Youth Inauguration Conference.
“Politics has always been something I’ve been interested in; politics and history,” Shelton said.
