First-Ever Inaugural Day Viewing Event on NACC Campus

As a continuing commitment to providing services to its students and to the community, Northeast Alabama Community College will host a first-ever Inaugural Day Viewing party on campus on Tuesday, January 20 in the Tom Bevill Lyceum.

The event begins at 9:30 am with a live feed from WAFF-TV/Huntsville. The Honorable John Graham, Circuit Judge from Jackson County will be our featured speaker at 10:00 am, the swearing-in will be at 11:00 am, and the event concludes at 2:00 pm.

“This is the first time we’ve done something like this,” said Susan Barron, NACC Event Planner, adding that she anticipates a capacity crowd given the excitement of this historic inauguration. “We will still have classes that day, but we’re expecting some classes to join us in the theater for the event.”

All students, faculty and staff, as well as the public are invited to this free event. Refreshments will be served in the lobby.

Dr. David Campbell, President of NACC, stated, “Particularly since this is the country’s first elected African-American President, there is great interest throughout America in the Inauguration. We are pleased to be able to permit more people to witness this historic event through our technological resources at Northeast. We welcome the public to be with us on Inauguration Day.”
