Ronald Reagan Day

Ronald Reagan Day

We’ve just heard many opinions about the state of the union from our ESL students here at Hancock International College. All opinions aside one president that did a lot of good was Ronald Reagan. Today is a day that commemorates his time as President so we wanted to share about how America honors him today.

Ronaldreaganlegacyproject.org says, “Every year the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project sends requests to governors from all 50 states to issue a proclamation declaring February 6 ‘Ronald Reagan Day.’ On Reagan’s 103rd birthday, 37 states — eight with Democrat governors — have signed proclamations honoring the late president.

The Ronald Reagan Legacy Project was founded in 1997 and is committed to preserving the legacy of the 40th President of the United States. The Project also works to encourage the naming of landmarks, buildings, schools, and roads after President Reagan. There are currently 108 domestic dedications in 28 states, and 14 international dedications in seven countries.

The most recent domestic dedication initiative is in Nevada where Chuck Muth’s Mount Reagan Project is leading an effort to name a mountain peak after the late president.

Grover Norquist, founder and chairman of the RRLP, had this to say about the late President: ‘Ronald Reagan led America forward to defeat the threats to our prosperity of high taxes, inflation, and recession at home and a surging Soviet Empire abroad.  He left America stronger, freer, and safer than the day he became President.’”
