McKinley honored the 25th oldest boarding school in the United States on the House floor on Wednesday morning, where he said, "After 200 years, Linsly has already influenced the lives of hundreds of young people, and now it is ready for another 200. Mr. Speaker, I ask that we honor this momentous anniversary. Happy 200th Birthday, Linsly School."

McKinley said the school continues the same principles it was founded on in 1814 -  academic excellence and character development. In its 200th year, Linsly is welcoming students from 15 states and 12 foreign countries.
