September 17-23, 2023 is Constitution Week

During their work session on Sept. 11, 2023, the Horry County Board of Education issued the proclamation that September 17-23, 2023 would be recognized as Constitution Week.

Constitution Week is the commemoration of America's most important document. 

The United States Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties, freedoms and inalienable rights.

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.
