The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation is proud to present a special opportunity for student athletes and other young leaders. Elementary, Middle and High School classes are invited to engage in a discussion with Olympian Derek Parra on dedication, serving the community, and what it means to be an athlete and role model. From humble beginnings, L.A. native Derek Parra showed incredible perseverance and determination as he climbed up the ranks in roller skating to become a world record holder. At the top of his field, Parra switched his path to speed skating to become a two time Olympic medalist in the 2002 Winter Olympics. Learn more about Derek Parra’s inspiring story of becoming the Mexican American to compete in, and medal, in the Olympic Winter Games here- http://www.qsports.net/derekparrastory.html

The Walter and Leonore Annenberg Presidential Learning Center, in partnership with the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University, invites you to join Professor Gordon Lloyd on April 11th as he presents “The Ratification of the Constitution” in four parts. Professor Gordon Lloyd is the scholar architect behind the TeachingAmericanHistory.org website, the premier resource for studying the Constitutional Convention. Through extensive study of Madison’s notes and artifacts from the Founding Era, Professor Lloyd has unparalleled understanding of the Framers and the events that took place leading up to the signing and ratification of the Constitution. Professor Lloyd will help audiences navigate through the vast and complex Founding Era and provide an intimate look at the ratification of the Constitution. This lecture series will take the audience back in time to 1787 and offer the audience a glimpse at the debates surrounding ratification through two lenses: “out-of-doors” in newspapers and pamphlets throughout America’s thirteen states and “in-doors” in the state ratifying conventions. Participants will receive complementary admission to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, Air Force One, and a special exhibition: Baseball: Celebrating Our Great American Pastime. This free event is open to teachers, students and the general public.
