CROWDER COLLEGE CONSTITUTION WEEK EVENTS
NEOSHO, MO – Crowder College’s Social Science Division will hold its annual Constitution Day on Monday, September 17, from 12:30-1:45 p.m. in the Wright Conference Center, located inside the Arnold Farber Building.
This year’s annual Constitution Day event will consist of a General Assembly Forum. Candidates for the Missouri House of Representatives in the 159th and 160th districts, along with Missouri State Senate candidates from the 32nd district will share their platform and take questions from those in attendance. The event is open to the public.
Constitution Day is a national holiday on which schools, colleges and universities across the United States commemorate the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.
This year Crowder College will expand upon Constitution Day with a Constitution Week of slated activities. In addition to the General Assembly Candidate Forum, the Crowder Speech and Debate Team will host two Constitutional debates, voter registration will be held, and a Constitution Week Movie Series will showcase films with Constitutional premises.
“In an effort to further the Crowder College mission of building a civil, serving, literate, learning community of responsible citizens, the Social Science Division has worked with partners on campus to expand the recognition of the U.S. Constitution beyond one day. This year’s Constitution Week aims to create multiple opportunities for students to study the U.S. Constitution in a meaningful and relevant manner beyond the classroom.” shared Keith Zoromski, Social Science Division Chair.
