Education and Sharing Day

Apr 19, 2024

WHEREAS, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson worked tirelessly to advocate for the values of education, morality, and civic duty throughout his life, and in 1978, the United States Congress validated Rabbi Schneerson’s efforts with the proclamation of Education and Sharing Day; and

WHEREAS, effective leaders recognize that excellence in education is an essential building block towards the success of our Nation, our State, and our communities; and

WHEREAS, in the Great State of Alaska, we strive to better our citizens and provide each child and adolescent with a high-quality education; and

WHEREAS, education develops a child’s intellect and prepares students for the responsibilities and opportunities of the future through lessons in literacy, math, and science; and

WHEREAS, we strengthen the character of our youth by encouraging them to serve a cause greater than themselves and by fostering values such as courage and compassion; and

WHEREAS, by instilling a spirit of service in our children and youth, we create a brighter future for them and for Alaska; and

WHEREAS, education is a continuous process in which each person should seek to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the world throughout their life.

NOW THEREFORE, I, Mike Dunleavy, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF ALASKA, do hereby proclaim April 19, 2024 as:

Education and Sharing Day

in Alaska and encourage all Alaskans to pursue education and opportunities to serve others, and to foster building character, values, and morality in our youth and in ourselves, aiming toward a brighter future for all.
