Goldsboro High School Student Going To See Obama

As one Governor is being sworn in others are getting ready for the inauguration of another. A local warrior plans to attend president-elect Barack Obama's swearing in ceremony.

Amethyst Mcphail is an Eastern Wayne High school student who was chosen by the Congressional Youth Leadership Council Alumni to head to Washington DC to watch the presidential inauguration.

Mcphail says she was chosen because she is a straight A student, a member of the National Honor Society and shows great leadership potential.

She told us some of the things she'll be doing.
"I'm going to be listening and participating in a round table discussion with Colin Powell and Al Gore."

Although president-elect Obama ran a campaign of change so far Mcphail has not changed her mind. She plans to study Dentistry in college.

    I am not pleased at what was said about in these comments. And a local warrior is the mascot of Eastern Wayne High. DUH! What else could it possibly mean, but it does show how ignorant and stupid people who commented this really are. We should be proud of her. Instead we are shutting her down. What is it, we're not used to a young black student accomplishing goals? I know we think it is normal for blacks to be in trouble all the time.

    Congratulations to a deserving young student. Some of the comments here are preposterous. Do people even think before expressing such disgusting comments. Gore and Powell have nothing in common with Charles Manson or David Berkowitz, as the writer suggested. Such radical postings says much about the writer, and please stop accusing this young lady's parents of "bad parenting". The school's mascot is "The Warriors".

    What parent in thier right mind would want thier child exposed to the lies and treasonous ways of Al"The Bore" Gore and Colin "Turncoat" Powell. She might as well go spend a day conversing with Charles Manson or David Berkowitz. One group is just about as bad as the other. Of course her parents are most likely Obama cult memebers, so what would you expect.

    Maybe because her school's mascot is the warriors??? Wow! It's not rocket science. :.)

    Why is she referred to as a local warrior?

    Why are the comments so rude on here? This girl is a straight A student and she is not out selling drugs or having babies. Everyone needs to congratulate her, instead of criticizing whether she is a local warrior or not.

    This is another example of bad parenting. Parents don't let you kids talk with Al Gore. Hes full of global warming. He is the guy who created hurrican seeds to pay eastern NC for the fact we didn't vote for him.
