Oak Hill man marches in inaugural parade


LEXINGTON, Va. — Sean M. McVey, a Virginia Military Institute cadet, was among the approximately 1,500 who marched in this year’s presidential inaugural parade Jan. 21.

Cadet McVey is from Oak Hill, the son of Teresa D. McVey.

The Corps of Cadets marched through the heart of Washington D.C., from the U.S. Capitol Building to the reviewing stand at the White House. The Corps was the final group in the parade, passing the president in review at about 6:30 p.m.

The cadets’ participation marked the 14th time the VMI Corps of Cadets has marched in a presidential inaugural parade.

VMI, with an enrollment of 1,600 cadets, is the nation’s oldest state-supported military college. U.S. News and World Report has ranked it among the top three public-supported liberal arts colleges in the nation.
