Dear civic educator:
When I was a young student in El Paso, Texas, civics and American history were a big part of my education. I didn’t know it at the time, but those classes were preparing me for a career of public service in all three branches of government.
Sitting in your classrooms right now might very well be a future Supreme Court Justice, Senator, or mayor -- or perhaps a future PTA president, Little League coach, or other civic leader. One thing is certain: all of them are citizens and future voters. And that puts the future of our nation in your hands.
