Melissa Ganje reports two students at Ashland Middle School in Duluth have received invitations to attend the Inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama. “When I opened the invitation I was like, are you serious? Oh my gosh!” said eighth-grader Maddie Auvinen. Auvinen and classmate Kaylie McCarthy were selected to attend the National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C. when they were fifth-graders.
