Constitution Day Set for Friday

On Friday, Arkansas Tech University will celebrate the signing of the United States Constitution.

According to the Constitution Center website, Constitution Day is a day to continue the legacy of the 39 brave men who changed the course of history and develop habits of citizenship in a new generation of Americans.

At noon, a public reading of the U.S. Constitution in the Doc Bryan Rotunda will kick off the day of events. Readers include local dignitaries Mayor Tyrone Williamson, Justice of the Peace Madelyn Ginsberg, President of the Russellville School Board Jamie Sorrells and Russellville Schools Superintendent Randall Williams. Refreshments will be served.

Also at noon, there will be Constitution quizzes and other activities for the Tech community at Chambers Cafeteria and Doc’s Place. These activities will move to the Pendergraft Library entrance from 2-4 p.m. Prizes will be available to those who complete quizzes.

Throughout the day Tech student volunteers will be hosting educational lessons about the Constitution at Dwight Elementary and Russellville Junior High School.
