HCC to Celebrate Constitution Day

HCC to Celebrate Constitution Day

Following the direction of the United States Congress, which has mandated that all institutions that receive federal funding shall celebrate Constitution Day with their community, Highland Community College will have a variety of activities to mark the celebration on September 17. 

On September 17, 1787, thirty-nine men signed the United State Constitution which set forth the fundamental principles of a government.  To commemorate that signing, the College will have information available in the Library and students can take advantage of several activities designed to enhance their awareness of the Constitution. 

Taking to heart the charge to educate the public about the Constitution, HCC Librarian Penny Donaldson will put up a display in the Library of materials on the Constitution.  In addition, she will have handouts with cross word puzzles and word puzzles concerning the Constitution.  Using the puzzle format is an effective means for remembering information.

Donaldson also will send a quiz for all students, staff, and faculty to test their knowledge of what the Constitution contains.  Others may ask in the Library.  Finally, anyone going through the lunch line will be encouraged to re-sign the Constitution to emphasize that the majority of the original signers were just like them.
