   Southeastern Technical College observed Constitution

Week from Sept. 19 -22, to commemorate the adoption of the United

States Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787. In celebration of this

event, the college held several activities focused on honoring that

important document.  

   “The United States Constitution is one of the greatest ‘living’

documents in the world, the oldest written constitution still in

effect,” said Dr. Barry Dotson, vice president of student affairs

at STC. “Constitution Week provides us an opportunity to remind our

students of how unique that document is and how it is still

relevant today.”

   Students were offered pamphlets on the Constitution and voter

registration forms in the atrium of the main building on the

Vidalia campus, the library on the Swainsboro campus and the lobby

of the Glennville campus.  On Wednesday, students could take in two

showings of the movie “A More Perfect Union” in the Tattnall

Auditorium in Vidalia and Building 1 Auditorium in Swainsboro.

Thursday was “Red, White and Blue Jean Day,” when staff and

students displayed their patriotism in their clothing.

   “We always hope that this week will spark some interest in some

students and that they will spend time reading about how the

Constitution came to be developed,” said Dotson. “At the very

least, we hope it serves as a reminder of how precious our freedoms

are and how fortunate we are to live in the United States of

America.”
