Seminole State College will host its annual Constitution Day event on Sept. 17 at 10 a.m. in the Utterback Ballroom, located in the Enoch Kelly Haney Center. This year’s event will feature guest speaker John Guinn, the Oklahoma Convention of States Director. Attendees will also have the opportunity to register to vote at stations set up by the Student Government Association and the Phi Theta Kappa honor society. Light refreshments will also be provided for attendees.
Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787, and the day honors those who have become U.S. citizens. Publicly funded educational institutions celebrate the day by providing educational programming about the history of the founding document.
Guinn will speak on Article V of the Constitution, the process of amending the Constitution, the history of amendments and an overview of the Convention of States. In addition to Guinn’s work with the Convention of States, he has been a member of the U.S. military and has served as an adjunct professor of American Government at OSU-OKC and Rose State College.
In addition to Friday’s event, SSC also invited students to participate in Constitution Bingo via Zoom, a video conferencing software, on Sept. 14. Amazon gift cards were given to bingo winners and as randomly drawn door prizes to attendees.
