The Metro East Pachyderm Club (MEPC) was recently informed that multiple local junior high schools did not have actual printed versions of the U.S. Constitution for their eighth grade students to read or refer to for their required government class. The club overwhelmingly supported purchasing enough pamphlets of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence so every student in these schools had their own copy to keep. The distribution by club members, occurred May 11 and 12 at Carriel and Fulton Junior High School campuses in O’Fallon. The club has since learned there are many schools in the area that are unable to provide copies of the Constitution to their students. Additional pamphlets have been ordered for them. The MEPC has officially sanctioned this mission: to ensure every area student receives one of these pamphlets so they may have the best possible chance to learn and understand our most important founding documents.
