Waverly students will get tour of Terrace Hill instead of White House

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Waverly students that made national news after the sequester canceled their White House tour will now get a personal tour of Terrace Hill and the Governor's office.

Governor Terry Branstad announced on Thursday that he will give the students of St. Paul's Lutheran School a tour on March 28.

The students launched a Facebook page in hopes of getting a tour, but were denied when they visited the White House on March 16. 

"I am pleased the students from St. Paul's Lutheran School in Waverly will be able to visit Terrace Hill and the State Capitol," Branstad said in a written statement. "Just like in Washington, our Legislature is split among political parties, but we are still able to work together to better our state. I was disappointed to learn The White House canceled the students' tour, but I hope a tour of Terrace Hill and the governor's office will be a small consolation."

The students are scheduled to tour Terrace Hill at 10:00 a.m. and the Governor's Formal Office at 11:30 a.m. on March 28.
