Ohioans To Play A Role At Inauguration

Some Ohioans will be front and center for President Barack Obama's inauguration.

Toledo autoworker Kenyetta Jones represents one of eight "citizen co-chairs" who've been selected to highlight Obama's first-term accomplishments. Jones also spoke at last year's Democratic National Convention. She'll ride on an inaugural parade float after Obama's swearing-in Monday. The Miami University Marching Band will be in the parade too. And the former band director at Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School near Cleveland wrote musical arrangements for the inauguration. Ryan Nowlin is an arranger in the U.S. Marine Band. He created the score that the band will play.
