Presidents day with washington and lincolnToday is the day we celebrate the presidents in our life, both past and present. George Washington’s Birthday, also known as Presidents’ Day, is a federal holiday held on the third Monday of February (although records show that George Washington’s birthday is on February 22.) The day honors presidents of the United States, including George Washington, the USA’s first president.

So, on this day, we thank the presidents, but why not also acknowledge President Manion? Dr. Manion is the 16th president of Marian University. In 2017, we highlighted Dr. Manion on this same occasion.
