Donald Trump will take the oath of office on Friday at 11am CST and several locals will be in the crowd watching history.

11 students from Benton Middle School will be in the crowd. They have been in the nation's Capitol all week taking part in workshops and learning about government. We will chat with them live on Friday morning as they prepare to make the trek to the ceremony.

Congressman Mike Johnson will join his colleagues in the audience as Trump is sworn in as the nation's 45th president. Mike will join us on KEEL at 8:10 Friday morning.

Our co-worker Jamie Hammack is also in D.C. and he will chat with us Friday morning as well. Louis Avallone who was a Trump delegate in the Electoral College will also talk with us about his experiences at the event.  Local businessman Ronnie Remedies will also be in the crowd. We hope to catch up with him as well.

Donald Trump will use two Bibles — his own and the Bible that Abraham Lincoln used at his first inauguration. The oath of office will be administered by Chief Justice John Roberts.

Committee chairman Tom Barrack says Trump "is humbled to place his hand on Bibles that hold special meaning both to his family and to our country."

Mike Pence will use Ronald Reagan's family Bible when he's sworn in Vice President.

When Pence takes his oath of office Friday, the Bible will be open to the same verse, II Chronicles 7:14, as when Reagan was inaugurated as president.

The passage says, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
