What John F. Kennedy Means to Me Archive

Students at What JFK Means to Me ceremony

For over thirty years, John F. Kennedy National Historic Site has worked with the Edward Devotion School to offer third graders a special program called "What John F. Kennedy Means to Me." During the program, the students study JFK, visit his birthplace and presidential library and then write about what they have learned in essays and poems. This page contains an archive of student essays and poems from 2011-present, as well as photographs. Please use the quicklinks below to jump to a specific year.
