Clark State College will observe Constitution Day with a special event planned for Friday, September 17.
“Celebrating Constitution Day is an opportunity for our Clark State community to expand their knowledge of the Constitution,” said Nina Wiley, dean of student engagement and support services at Clark State. “We also hope to ignite conversations related to civic awareness among our students, faculty and staff.“
Clark State will host a Constitution Day Challenge to test the knowledge of Clark State students, faculty and staff.
On September 17, 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed by the members of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The U.S. Constitution serves as the supreme law of the United States of America and is the framework for the United States government.
September 17 is marked as Constitution Day to commemorate the signing of the constitution and to encourage all generations of citizens of the United States of America to celebrate the freedom created for the people of our nation.
Clark State’s Constitution Day Challenge will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the TLC rotunda on the main campus in Springfield.
