Darton State College to Celebrate 225th Constitution Day Sept 17th & 18th

By   /   September 14, 2012  /   Comments Off

On Monday we will have a variety of Constitution Days’ activities across campus.  At 11am, 5 home schooled students (recruited by Judge Joe Bishop) will each present an oration on the Constitution in the J Building Theatre.  Please encourage your students/classes to attend.   We will have sign in sheets for extra credit.

On Tuesday,  our key speaker will deliver an address on the Constitution at 11am, in the J Building Theatre.  Todd S. Handelman will speak on the constitution, supreme court and their impact in our lives from past to present.

Mr. Handelman was born in Chicago, Illinois. He is a 1986 magna cum laude graduate of the University of Illinois. Mr. Handelman earned his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Georgia in 1989. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Admitted to the Georgia Bar in 1989, Mr. Handelman is also admitted to the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia, the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court. He is a member of the State Bar of Georgia and the Dougherty Circuit Bar Association.

Monday and Tuesday students will help put up the flags borrowed from the American Legion.  Monday, 9:30 to 1:00 pm students will see others dressed in the garb of our colonial founding fathers. They will be passing out constitutions and monitoring some trivia games. The games include a scavenger hunt and a Liberty Wheel. A group of students competing in an upcoming Constitutional Oratory Contest will be speaking at 11 am to 1 pm.

Efforts are in the works to show, during Constitution Week, on Channel 19 a chronicled report on the days of the creation of the Constitution in 1787 to the final signing on Sept 17, 1787.
