RCHS Signs Constitution Week Proclamation

Representatives of the Rockcastle County Chapter of the DAR, along with student officers in the RCHS Key Club, Librarian Janet Wells and RCHS Principal and DAR member Jennifer Mattingly, joined together to sign the proclamation for Constitution Week, which occurs next week.

This celebration of the Constitution was started by the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1955, DAR petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
