The Gubernatorial Inauguration is less than two weeks away. When Governor-Elect Ron DeSantis (R) gets sworn-in, a group of Southwest Florida students will be right there watching history.

And, there’s still room for a few more students.

MORE: Lee, Collier County students travel to the capital to see DeSantis sworn in.

Organizer Anthony Thomas will take students from Lee and Collier counties, along with students from Florida Gulf Coast University and Florida SouthWestern State College, to the Gubernatorial Inauguration in Tallahassee, Florida.

When will the students leave:

Students and chaperones will be picked up at school district headquarters in their respective counties on Sunday, Jan. 6. Pick-up time in Collier County is 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. in Lee County. The trip will leave for Tallahassee at 7 a.m.

For questions, to help or to recommend a student to take part, reach out to organizer Anthony Thomas at Anthony_Thomasfmh@hotmail.com.
