Katy Mayor Don Elder recently signed two proclamations presented by the Star of Destiny Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.
The proclamation for Constitution Week, which is Sept. 17-23, was presented to Mayor Elder by Star of Destiny Chapter member Meagan Dolin. Constitution day, Sept. 17, was mandated by the U.S. Congress to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution. On Sept. 17, 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed by 39 brave men who changed the course of history. The U.S. Constitution is one of the most influential legal documents in existence. Since its creation some 200 years ago, more than 100 countries around the world have used it as a model for their own.
Mayor Elder also signed the proclamation for Native American Heritage Recognition Month. Star of Destiny member Suzanne Neal presented the proclamation to the mayor for his signature. The Native American Heritage Recognition month is celebrated in November and was established by the U.S. Congress in 1990. The proclamation is signed in U.S. communities annually in recognition of the contributions of Native Americans.
Each year, The American Indians Committee of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, awards two scholarships to Native Americans, and is intended to help Native American students of any age, any tribe, and in any state striving to get an education. All awards are judged based on financial need and academic achievement.
