On their honor: Students take Oath of Office


U.S. Sen. Jack Reed administered the Oath of Office to members of Colt-Andrews Elementary School's 2013-2014 student government Friday morning. The students were recognized for their commitment to their peers as representatives of the school's student body.

"As a representative, you put your own interests aside, and work together for a common good," Sen. Reed told the group. "You are to be honest, work hard, listen and do your best in the interest of the public."

He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
