Foundation presents constitution booklets to schools

POSTED: 10/19/11 7:03 PM

St. Maarten – Members of the Lynch family spent last week distributing copies of “The Constitution of St. Maarten made simple” last week as part of the commemoration of one year of country status. The presentations to subsidized and non-subsidized schools were made in memory of Edgar H. Lynch and J. Egbert Lynch who worked with their brother Julian C. Lynch to establish Foundation EWA. The organization is aimed at educating youngsters and the public on political issues.

The Methodist Agogic Center in Philipsburg was the first school to be presented with the booklet and a letter Edgar Lynch wrote to the schools announcing the project. This school was chosen because J. Egbert Lynch was a founding member of the school board. The letter, which Edgar Lynch wrote but never sent because of his timely passing, was an added keepsake.
Foundation EWA also announced Tuesday that copies of Know your Political History, which was written by Edgar and Julian Lynch, is being offered to schools at a reduced price as a aid for teachers who wish to educate the nation’s youth on the country’s constitutional past. The statement also acknowledges that Edgar Lynch passed the baton as main anchor of the popular Election Watch Night program to his nephew Henry Lynch during the live broadcast of the election results on September 17, 2010.
