Constitution Day talk is Sept. 21
By Jonah Unger
LCC’s Arts and Sciences building rooms 1310 and 1304 will be the site of a panel discussion for Constitution Day on Wednesday, Sept. 21 from 4 to 6 p.m.
The discussion will be about how voting impacts the Supreme Court.
The event is open to employees, students and community members. There will be light refreshments as well as free pocket copies of the U.S Constitution.
The panel will also be livestreamed on WebEx for those who cannot attend physically. Anyone interested in the livestream can click here to join.
According to LCC’s website, there will be three speakers; Michael McDaniel, former dean at WMU Cooley Law School; retired District Judge Charles Filic; and attorney Mary Kay Scullion, a former LCC professor.
On Sept. 17, 1787 the U.S Constitution was signed, thus birthing Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. According to LCC’s website: “This day is to commemorate the signing, as well as what’s known as “the pursuit of happiness.”
LCC’s goal is to have experts share their experiences, as well as answer questions from students as well as the community. The event is not a debate. Instead it is an opportunity to explore the influence of voting.
All participants will be asked to observe the tone and civility that should accompany academic settings in particular.
Also on Sept. 21, on the second floor of the LCC library in the TLC building, there will be a Constitution book display.
