Cahokia Mounds has been a fascinating place, to me, for many years.
During my teaching years, I brought some of my classes to Cahokia Mounds. From the reactions of the students, each trip was an outstanding success.
Through the years my friends and I made occasional Sunday afternoon trips to the Mounds. When I became the State Senator, it afforded me the opportunity to secure funds for the Acquisition of additional acreage in which there are smaller Mounds. Many of these have contained additional artifacts.
Helping Cahokia Mounds Museum Society has been very satisfying. I have enjoyed being a part of the Society's efforts.
