GMC-Augusta celebrates Constitution Day
(Students at GMC's Augusta campus celebrated Constitution Day.)
230 years ago, in 1787, thirty-nine delegates from the Constitutional Convention gathered together to ratify the Constitution. Constitution Day is recognized in conjunction with Citizenship Day to commemorate the signing of the document that gave life to the United States government and to recognize those who are born or naturalized citizens of our country.
Observing both of these national holidays gives students the opportunity to learn the history of the Constitution and understand the freedoms that it protects for American citizens. These holidays also bring to light the privileges that citizens hold and the interests of those seeking shelter and citizenship in the United States.
In commemoration of Constitution Day, Georgia Military College – Augusta campus performed the raising of the flag accompanied by the signing of the National Anthem, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. Additional activities, such as voter registration, naturalization tests, and word games were held in the Student Lounge. We concluded our festivities with giving away free hot dogs, drinks, and chips!
