Mother takes her 6 kids on family field trip to Clinton rally

WINTERVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Among the first-time rally goers at the Hillary Clinton rally in Winterville Thursday was one family that was simply there to learn.

Stephanie Bazzle home schools her children and brought six of her eight kids all the way from Tyrell County to the rally.

“We’re calling it a field trip,” said Stephanie Bazzle. “They need to have some idea of what’s going on and what everybody’s doing.”

Bazzle wanted her children to have the opportunity to understand what’s going on in the election.

“We try very hard for them to be aware and understanding what’s going on and have some educated opinions and decisions,” Bazzle said.

Her children already have some political opinions of their own.

“I was wanting home school kids to access public school sports,” said Cayman Pope, 13.

While the field trip wasn’t politically motivated, 10-year-old Harmony Pope seems to have made up her mind.

“I think it’s going to be pretty cool to see…hopefully our next women president in person,” Harmony Pope said.
