Two Bend teenagers have been invited by incoming Governor John Kitzhaber to attend today's inauguration ceremony. Kitzhaber met the two brothers through a school the boys attend while on a field trip to Washington D.C. several years ago. The Governor was impressed by their interest in government and politics. The boys mother Lisa Germain: “We did get a formal invite in the mail from John Kitzhaber to join in the festivities.” Germain says her sons attend the Oregon Connections Academy that is an online - at home school where students do the bookwork at home and spend what would be "at school time"; going on field trips and other experiences. Justin Germain, 15, explains why this trip will be beneficial to his development: “I have been interested in American History and American Government. I’m actually taking "Honors Government" right now, and going to the Inauguration is just another way to experience government. Josh Germain, 13, says his interest is just a little different than his older brother's: “I'm enjoying just, you know, having that experience. That opportunity to go and with Justin, I've been following government a bit and it's going to be great to be, you know, living it not just reading it out of a text book. “ Both boys are excited about the fact that after the Inauguration, they get to go to the Governor's mansion to watch the Oregon Ducks play in the BCS Championship.
