Kaly Streety, a student at Victoria College, was invited to attend the presidential inauguration in January. During this five-day program, the Collegiate Presidential Inaugural Conference provided scholars with a deeper understanding of the history behind the electoral process and the rich traditions surrounding the inauguration. Streety had the opportunity to interact with historians, political experts and leading decision-makers to discuss campaign strategy and presidential politics. She also attended an exclusive gala inaugural celebration just for participating scholars. Streety is the daughter of Philip and Jackie Streety, of Smiley; the granddaughter of Julia Scarbourough, of Smiley, and the late Joe Streety; and the granddaughter of Wilfred Block, of Cuero, and the late Frankie Block.
