Markman joins Patriot Week Board of Directors

Retired Michigan Supreme Court Justice, and Chief Justice, Stephen Markman has joined the Board of Directors of The Patriot Week Foundation. Capping a lengthy commitment of public service in a variety of capacities, Markman served on the Court from 1999 until his retirement at the end of last year on account of state judicial age limitations.

Patriot Week deepens the appreciation of the First Principles, Founding Fathers and other Patriots, vital documents and speeches, and flags. Anchored by the key dates of September 11 (the anniversary of the terrorists attacks) and September 17 (Constitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution by the Founding Fathers), the schedule for each day has a separate focus.

Co-created in 2009 by Judge Michael Warren and his then 10-year-old daughter Leah, Patriot Week is a nonpartisan effort unanimously recognized by the US Senate and over a dozen states.  Patriot Week’s efforts include a broad variety of initiatives and resources, including grassroots events, lesson plans, a blog, a podcast, TV show, and video presentations.  For more information, visit www.PatriotWeek.org.
