Kander Marks Missouri Day
Jefferson City, Mo. — Secretary of State Jason Kander today marked Missouri Day by reminding all Missourians to take a moment and reflect upon the historic importance of our state and the many accomplishments of its residents.
"Missouri Day is a great opportunity for all of us to take a moment and recognize our state's extraordinary past, present and future," Kander said. "Whether you celebrate the successes of our small businesses and corporations, athletes and entertainers, teachers and students, or just the incredible work ethic of the Show-Me State overall, I urge all Missourians to take a moment and join me in celebrating Missouri Day."
On March 22, 1915, the 48th General Assembly set aside the third Wednesday in October each year as "Missouri Day," due to the efforts of Mrs. Anna Brosius Korn, a native Missourian. Missouri Day is a time for schools to honor the state and for the people of the state to celebrate the achievements of all Missourians.
Kander also reminded Missourians to check out www.MissouriDigitalHeritage.com today to learn more about our state's storied past.
