EGSC to hold Constitution Day events

   In celebration of the creation of the American Constitution, East Georgia State College will sponsor special events to commemorate our Constitutional heritage.  EGSC will commemorate the 230th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution with panel discussions that will address some of the most pressing challenges to our constitutional system. This year, both East Georgia State College’s Swainsboro and Statesboro campuses will be host events to on September 18.
   Beginning at 12 p.m. in the library on EGSC – Swainsboro’s campus, there will be a forum on the topic of “What are our Constitution Foundations,” in Room J503 with guest speakers Professor Randy Carter, Dr. John Derden, Professor Courtney Joiner, and Dr. Lee Cheek. Also, students that are not registered to vote can register during that time at the table outside J503!
   On the EGSC – Statesboro campus beginning at 12 p.m. there will be a talk featuring guest speaker Officer Joe Cephus of the EGSC Police Department. The topic is “The 2nd Amendment and Higher Education: The ‘Campus Carry’ Measure” and will be held in Room H195. The talk will be facilitated by EGSC – Statesboro Political Science professors Dr. Tom Caiazzo, Daniel Mancill and Brett Larson.
   “With our current constitutional challenges, it is vital for the world’s leading democracy to remember our roots, and discuss our Constitution. EGSC welcomes our whole community to share in these conversations,” said Dr. Lee Cheek, Dean of the School of Social Science at EGSC.
