President Who? The Forgotten Constitution: In May 1994, Stan Klos won the US Senate Republican primary and challenged incumbent Robert C. Byrd for the West Virginia Senate seat the following November. Stan recalls that:
After the election, Senator Byrd and I would speak, from time to time, to discuss history and politics. On one occasion, he asked for my input on the Foundations of Freedom US Constitution project, which Congress had funded with $2,000,000. The interactive DVD, formulated at the Erma Byrd Center for Educational Technologies, was supposed to be completed in time for the enactment of US Constitution and Citizenship Day. During that consulting period the Senator and I discussed the project along with his plan to establish September 17th as Constitution and Citizenship Day. I sent along some ideas that incorporated recognition for the Articles of Confederation. Specifically, I proposed a "Constitution Week" to fall on the first week of March, which would include the 1st and 4th days that respectively, marked the commencement of the Articles of Confederation and Constitution of 1787 U.S. Republics. The Senator listened, asked questions but never did use any of my ideas to include the Articles of Confederation or move Constitution Day to March. After the legislation was enacted, at the Senator’s request, Wheeling Jesuit University invited me to assemble an exhibit of constitutional primary sources and keynote its first Constitution and Citizenship Day celebration. Senator Byrd gave his Constitution Day keynote address at West Virginia's Shepherds College on September 16, 2005.
SUMMARY: The Assistant Deputy Secretary for Innovation and Improvement announces that, pursuant to legislation passed by Congress, educational institutions receiving Federal funding are required to hold an educational program pertaining to the United States Constitution on September 17 of each year.
