Clarksville Academy’s sixth grade teacher, Kimberly Goad, has been selected from a national field of educators to attend this year’s presidential inaugural conference in Washington DC. Her nomination was chosen by the National Young Scholars Program to act as a faculty advisor for middle school students travelling to this prestigious event.
The Presidential Inaugural Conference is a nonpartisan educational event held in Washington, D.C. every four years for middle school and high school students in celebration and in recognition of the Inauguration of the President and Vice President of the United States.

This is Mrs. Goad with her spy kit that was used in an activity to welcome the students to DC.
