Monday was the 231st anniversary of the signing of the Constitution of the United States, and to mark the occasion, students in several Tennessee schools will participate this week in “Constitution Week” events sponsored by the office of U.S. Senator Bob Corker.

One of the events took place on Wednesday in Cleveland, where a member of Senator Corker’s staff delivered an interactive presentation to fourth-grade students at North Lee 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 230 years,” said Senator Corker. “One of the ways we can honor and defend the Constitution is to ensure the next generation of leaders understands its importance to our liberty and values. Sponsoring Constitution Week events over the past 11 years has been incredibly rewarding for our office, and I hope the students who have participated have walked away recognizing 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 took office in 2007.
