The 230th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution of the United States was Sunday, and to mark the occasion, students in 13 Tennessee schools will participate in “Constitution Week” events sponsored by the office of U.S. Senator Bob Corker. 

The events continued Thursday in Chattanooga, where a member of Senator Corker’s staff delivered an interactive presentation to fourth- and fifth-grade students at Rivermont Elementary School. 

“Each year, my office has the privilege of speaking with students across the Volunteer State about the document that has served as the foundation of our country for more than 200 years, and I am proud to join my fellow Tennesseans in celebrating the United States Constitution in this way,” said Senator Corker. “One of the ways we can honor and defend the Constitution is to ensure the next generation of leaders understand its importance to our liberty and values. I hope the students who attend our events across the state walk away with an interest in our nation’s history and recognize what a blessing it is to live in the greatest country on Earth.” 

The Constitution of the United States was signed on Sept. 17, 1787. In 1956, Congress requested that President Eisenhower proclaim a Constitution Week each September. Senator Corker’s office has held Constitution Week events across the Volunteer State every year since the senator was elected to office in 2007.

Roy Exum: Why CNN Is Gonna Croak

I believe CNN (Cable News Network) has become one of the most disappointing news sources America has ever known in the last five years. The bastions of sound journalism no longer exist as the once-great organization has gone the way of liberal loathing. Its new basis-of-fact cannot be trusted and the overwhelming bias against conservatives in our nation is as morbid as it is frightening. ... (click for more)
