Spotlighting Constitution Day 2012 Events at Dallas and Fort Worth

On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the monumental document they had created: the Constitution of the United States. A primary document of American history, the U.S. Constitution stands as a model of cooperative statesmanship and the art of compromise.

Remington Colleges, including the Dallas and Fort Worth campuses, observed this important day in our nation’s history by attending local events and by learning more about the document that helped to shape our country’s future.

At Remington College in Dallas, the celebration extended to a month-long remembrance. Director of Education Billy Ferrell said, “Our Campus has three active buildings with a library in each building. Each building’s library and some classrooms were decorated with creative artifacts for Constitution Day for the entire month of September.

For example, students who came into one of the libraries and answered different questions dealing with the Constitution correctly were given small prizes. The students loved it, and they learned more about this important document during the process. Also, our instructors were encouraged to create different Constitution-themed projects that involved bringing their classes to the library to take advantage of the myriad of learning opportunities presented there.”

A tradition at Remington College in Fort Worth is to have their annual Constitution Day Campus Quiz. This year as in years past, a large framed poster displayed 20 thought-provoking questions regarding the history of events surrounding the creation and signing of the Constitution.  Students were given answer sheets on which they documented their responses. Of course, research was encouraged.

By the time you read this, Constitution Day 2012 will be over. But each day, we should be mindful of and remember the great sacrifices made by our country’s founders: courageous visionaries who worked together admirably to ensure that we would remain a free nation. To them, we express our deepest gratitude.
