Entry Description

Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence has signed a proclamation declaring tomorrow Statehood Day in the state of Indiana.  

“Indiana has a remarkable history that illustrates for the world the strength, inventiveness, and compassion of the Hoosier spirit,” said Governor Pence. “I look forward to joining Hoosier fourth graders, who are in the midst of studying our state’s storied past, and celebrating another tremendous year for Indiana.”  

To mark the 198th anniversary of Indiana becoming the nineteenth state in the Union, the Governor and First Lady Karen Pence will welcome Hoosier fourth graders to stations in the Statehouse Rotunda on Thursday, December 11 as part of the annual Statehood Day events.  

Students who visit the Governor’s booth will have the opportunity to depict what they would try to accomplish if they were governor. They will also be able to learn some interesting facts about Indiana through an interactive display that showcases what the state has to offer. 

Fourth graders who visit the First Lady’s booth will be greeted by Pence family pets Marlon Bundo, a rabbit, and Saphira, a snake. Both family pets will remain in their respective cage and aquarium throughout the duration of the event. 

A copy of the Governor’s proclamation can be found attached.
