Let us peaceably assemble for Constitution Week

Northeast State invites the public and civic-minded to the College’s commemoration Constitution Awareness Week held Sept. 17-23 and sponsored by the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration.  The week celebrates the 222nd anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution.

The 8th annual “We the People” forum scheduled for Sept. 17 at 10:30 a.m. in the performing arts center on the main campus brings together Northeast State students and faculty to discuss the Constitution’s structure and impact on American history from the signing of the Declaration of Independence to the present day.  Panel members Amanda Broome, Beth Ross, Matt DeLozier, and Mark Pollock engage in a lively discussion about the meaning and relevance of the Constitution.  The forum will be moderated by John Grubb.

Attorney Jim Culp will deliver the Constitution Awareness Week keynote address, “Our Constitution: Legitimacy, Stability, and Popular Opinion” at the WRCPA Theater on Sept. 18 at noon.  Culp serves as legal counsel for the city of Johnson City.

The public is invited to both events to learn about one of the most important documents ever written and the model for democratic governments throughout the world.
