RSU Constitution Luncheon
Students of Foyil Junior High and High School went to the 2017 Rogers State University Constitution Award last week. The man receiving this award was a former U.S. representative from the 5th district of Oklahoma. Mickey Edwards, received the prestigious award. He is an individual who by thought, word, and action demonstrates a deep and lasting commitment to the principles of the United States Constitution. He was a member of Congress for 16 years, serving on the House Budget and Appropriations Committees and as a chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee. After leaving Congress he taught for 11 years at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government before moving on to Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and then he went back to Washington, DC, as vice president of the Aspen Institute, where he also directed a bipartisan fellowship for elected public officials.
This was a very neat experience for our students at Foyil Junior High and High School. Students that attended were: Blaze Willis, Aidan Bland, Kassidy Harper, Allyson Bland, Gracie Wilkinson, Samantha Barnes, Cory Long, Mikaylee Willis, Gus Spence, Avery Bland, Matthew Dennis, Madison Sargent, Kassidy West, Jakub Kostka, and Coach Posey.
