In celebration of Constitution Day on Tue. Sept. 17 we posed the question, what unites us in 2019?
To help us answer that question we asked civil servants in our community to come speak to our American History students. Each spoke about the civic values that they value the most, demonstrate in their profession, and believe unite and strengthen our community. We were joined by local judges who spoke about the importance of justice and responsibility, police and firefighters elaborated on courage and vigilance, city council members and mayors expounded on initiative and resourcefulness, military serviceman shared how honor and perseverance defined their purpose and role in creating a better society.
After having the opportunity to listen to these esteemed guests, students were better equipped to answer the question: What unites us in 2019?
