BALLWIN, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Eighth graders at Parkway South Middle School witnessed history in the making when they watched Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday.

Emily Ludwig took notes as she watched.

“It was very calm and collected and it was very impressive to see the shift between the candidate who is easily made fun of by people seem more presidential,” said Ludwig.

She said she kept a close eye on Trump's presidential campaign.  Her mother immigrated from Vietnam and she doesn't agree with his stance on immigration, but seeing his speech has calmed some of her fears. 

It's this kind of open discussion that that history teacher Maria Flick said is important.

“It's always beneficial to see things without a filter. By watching live, they don't see any commentary,” said Flick.
