Students recite Pledge at RNC (video)


Jasmine Torres and Ti’Ajania Williams have recited the Pledge of Allegiance hundreds of times in elementary school but never on a stage in front of a national audience.

The two CMSD students helped kick off the Republican National Convention by reciting the Pledge at the The Q on July 18.

Jasmine, 11, Ti’Ajania, 14, and three other Cleveland-area students earned the privilege by competing in an essay contest.

Jasmine is a student at R.G. Jones School, while Ti’Ajania is an incoming ninth-grader at the John Marshall Campus. Meet them and their proud parents in this report by CMSD-TV’s Shannon Kantner.
