Ohioans to Play a Role in Inaguration Events

Jan 21, 2013

A handful of Ohioans will be front and center for President Barack Obama's inauguration.

Autoworker Kenyetta Jones is one of right "citizen co-chairs" who've been selected to highlight Obama's first-term accomplishments.

Jones spoke at last year's Democratic National Convention about Obama's work to bailout the auto industry.

She'll ride on an inaugural parade float after Obama's swearing-in Monday.

The Miami University Marching Band will be in the parade too.

And former band director at Brecksville-Boradview Heights High School near Cleveland wrote musical arrangements for the inauguration.

Ryan Nowlin is an arranger in the U.S. Marine Band.  He created the score that the band will play as it accompanies Kelly Clarkson and Beyonce at the swearing-in ceremony.
