JENNINGS, MO (KMOV.com) -- Tuesday morning, the Stanley Cup appeared at two schools in the Jennings School District.

The Stanley Cup's appearance at Jennings Junior High and Senior High Schools was the first in history for the trophy being at two urban schools.

“We are champions, and the Blues are champions and it’s an honor to have these nationals world-wide champions and it’s an honor to have these national world-wide champions sharing their championship love, pride and spirit  with us,” said Art McCoy, superintendent of Jennings.
