College to hold Constitution Day celebration

In honor of the 231st anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution, Tri-County Community College will hold its annual Constitution Day ceremony, sponsored by the Student Government Association, on Sept. 17 at 11:45 a.m. in the Enloe Building on the main campus in Murphy.

“We are extremely excited to offer our students, faculty, and staff, as well as the public, a fun and engaging opportunity to exercise their right to freedom of assembly,” said Cathy LaTulipe, SGA adviser at Tri-County Community College.

The celebration will include trivia games related to the U.S. Constitution, with door prizes for the winners, in addition to light refreshments being served.

“Each year on Constitution Day, the College prepares an event designed to educate our students and the public about how this historical document managed to shape the very foundation of our nation,” said Dr. Steve Wood, vice president for instruction and institutional effectiveness at Tri-County Community College. “This year our SGA is offering a new approach to the ceremony, which is more energetic and hands-on than ever before.”

According to LaTulipe, the event is free and open to the public, and all attendees will receive a pocket U.S. Constitution, provided by the SGA.
