St. Mary’s students recieve insight into The Constitution

Published 5:14 pm Saturday, September 22, 2018

On September 17, 1787, thirty-nine delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time and signed the U. S. Constitution recognizing all who are born in the U. S. or became citizens by naturalization.  Therefore, we celebrate Constitution Day on that day each year.

William Dotson teaches Social Studies to middle school students at St. Mary Catholic School.  He reached out to Judge Troy Johnson, Orange Court of Law to speak to students about the Constitution.  Johnson spoke about different Amendments such as the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote, the 22nd Amendment that limits the terms of President of the United States as well as other information about the Constitution and laws.  He also mentioned that his wife Veronica is an expert on the subject.   She is a Government teacher.

Students found Judge Johnson’s talk interesting as well as educational.

We appreciate Judge Johnson taking time out of his busy schedule to enlighten our students about the Constitution and the laws of our great country
