West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has rededicated a plaque in the Capitol honoring slain president John F. Kennedy.

Tomblin held a brief ceremony honoring Kennedy on Thursday, a day before the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination.

Kennedy spoke on the Capitol steps on the 100th anniversary of West Virginia's statehood in 1963. The plaque notes that Kennedy began his remarks by saying "The sun does not always shine in West Virginia, but the people always do."

A small display with videos of Kennedy and a signature book for residents to share their memories about Kennedy is also next to the plaque.
