Road Trip Nation makes a stop in East Tenn.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Students at Karns High School got quite the surprise Wednesday.

A group of roadies made a pit stop there on their trip across the country.
It's called Road Trip Nation, and they are making stops at different high schools, looking to empower and encourage students to graduate.

Students got a chance to ask state representative Roger Kane and other local businessmen questions about their careers.

Student Hannah Benson says, "I don't know what I want to be, but this is helping me to learn what I want to be. I know I can achieve it with hard work."

The group says it hopes it can inspire our future leaders.
