The Making of a Presidential Centennial

By Stewart D. McLaurin, Executive Director, The Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration

This “Centennial Celebration” kicked off on January 1st with a Ronald Reagan-themed float in the Tournament of Roses Parade, the first time in the 122-year history of this great American tradition that the parade has had a presidential-themed float. On the weekend of the President’s birthday, a blend of military ceremony and patriotic celebration took place over three days at the Reagan Library. Throughout the year, there will be a series of academic partnerships with the University of Southern California, the University of Notre Dame, the University of Virginia, and the U.S. Naval Academy, each focusing on a different component of the President’s life, leadership, and legacy. These events and many more will take place not only across the country, but around the world throughout 2011.
