U.S. Rep Andy Barr read a proclamation into the congressional record to celebrate our 120th anniversary this past May. The proclamation was read at Family Weekend Opening Ceremonies, as well as presented to Dr. Stewart.

We are so thrilled that Barr took the time to come visit us and see what we are all about!

We are posting the proclamation below.

  • Mr. BARR. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the Stewart Home School in Frankfort, Kentucky, and to congratulate them on their 120th Anniversary. The mission of the Stewart Home School is the complete and total care of special needs students, as well as the fulfillment of all their needs–physical, educational, social, vocational and spiritual.
  • Since 1893, Stewart Home School has provided a community where people live in a nurturing environment and participate in programs

  • Stewart Home School occupies the historic campus of the old Kentucky Military Institute, and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. The school offers a one-of-a-kind community where those with intellectual disabilities are appreciated for the people they are.
  • The Stewart Home School embraces each student as an individual who desires meaningful activity, success, friendships, and acceptance, and strives to develop skills and talents in all areas of life.
  • Mr. Speaker, I ask that my colleagues join me in commending the Stewart Home School for the tireless efforts to improve the lives of their students and in congratulating them on their 120th anniversary. I extend my personal appreciation to the Stewart Home for all that they have done for our community. The Stewart Home School is a gem in the Sixth Congressional District of Kentucky, not only improving the lives of its students, but also bettering our Commonwealth.
