Saint Augustine's College Celebrates Constitution Day

Sept. 30, 2011


altThe Division of Social Sciences at Saint Augustine's University observed Constitution Day on Thursday, Sept. 29, in the Seby Jones Auditorium. Judge Wanda Bryant, with the North Carolina Court of Appeals, was the guest speaker for the event.

Bryant explained to students the significance of the Constitution in their daily lives and the importance of becoming familiar with the document.

"The Constitution is not just words on a paper," Bryant said. "It's the subject of ongoing discussion and litigation."

President Dianne Boardley Suber challenged students to commit to learning more about the Constitution.

"It governs generations," Suber said. "Imagine a document — a piece of paper — that has that much power. It's something you want to understand."
