Heritage’s Director of the Kenneth B. Simon Center for Principles and Politics David Azerrad was recognized this week by The American Legion for his work throughout the nation furthering the principles America was founded on.
According to an email sent to David:
The Committee was most impressed with your [David’s] work in teaching the tenets of the American political tradition to policymakers, political leaders and the public.
Additionally the Committee was very appreciative of your work throughout the nation and most importantly your annual presentation on the Constitution to American Legion Boys Nation delegates. Your work reflects the highest values of The American Legion’s education goals and initiatives.
Azerrad will receive the American Legion’s National Education Award for 2017 this summer in recognition of his work.
This is just one of many examples of your support enabling tremendous influence across the country.
Please join me in congratulating David.
How important is it to educate the next generation of Americans on the principles this country was founded upon? Do you think the current public school system does a good job teaching these principles? Why or why not?
