Upcoming: On Hillary Clinton's Agenda

Thanks to Mom4Hill who found these little gems.  Two of Hillary Clinton's former home towns have plans to honor her.

In Park Ridge IL where she grew up, her high school is instituting a wall of honor inscribed with names of distinguished alumni.  Hillary and two others will be the inaugural honorees.

Hillary Clinton Leads First Wall Of Honor Class At Maine South

A former U.S. Secretary of State, presidential hopeful and First Lady will be among the first names on Maine South’s Wall of Honor.
Maine South and the Maine Township Dist. 207 Educational Foundation recently announced the Inaugural Induction Class to the Maine South Wall of Honor.

The Distinguished Alumni of this induction class are:
The Honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton (Class of 1965) - Government
Ms. Patricia Callahan (Class of 1989) - Arts and Letters
Dr. Nathan Hultman (Class of 1992) - Science

The formal induction will occur Thursday, Sept. 26, at a dinner held on behalf of the distinguished alumni. As part of Maine South’s homecoming festivities, the inductees will spend the day at Maine South on Friday, Sept. 27, and speak with students at its Homecoming Assembly.

Meanwhile, there is a movement afoot in Little Rock AR to name a children's library for her.  The Board is asking for the public to comment (click on the link for details).  It is not clear whether they want comments only from locals.

Children's Library may be named for Hillary Clinton

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Central Arkansas Library System) - The Central Arkansas Library System's Board of Trustees is considering recognizing Hillary Rodham Clinton by naming the new children's Library in her honor.

The Board said it wants to acknowledge the work she did as a citizen of Arkansas, including service for the Children's Defense Fund, Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, Arkansas Home Instruction Program for Preschool Youth, Arkansas Children's Hospital, Arkansas Educational System Task Force, Rural Healthy Advisory Committee, and many others, including her ground-breaking work as co-chair of Arkansas's Educational Standards Committee. We also wish to recognize her continued work at the national and international levels to improve the lives of all the world's children.

Finally, as our friends in Ontario are well aware,  tomorrow evening she will be speaking in Toronto at the Metro Centre as part of the Unique Lives series.   I know our Canadian friends are very excited about this public event and hope they enjoy iy thoroughly!

Edited to add:  The results of the latest Quinnipiac poll in Florida are here.  Hillary tops Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio.  Just so you know.
