BCF to celebrate Constitution Day

On Constitution Day, BCF history students will display a replica of the U.S. Constitution in the Student Center and provide free pocket-sized copies of the United States Constitution.

On Sept. 17, the Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville will celebrate the 233rd Anniversary of the United States of America’s Constitution.

It was signed Sept. 17, 1787, prior to its ratification by the states. Constitution Day is observed at BCF as a day of remembrance and tribute to those who have made and continue to make sacrifices for the cause of freedom and uniting the nation.

In observing Constitution Day, or Citizenship Day, a replica of the original constitutional document and the United States Bill of Rights will be placed on display in the common area of the Student Center by members of the history class. In addition to the large replica, there will also be free pocket-sized copies of the constitution provided to students for additional reflection and consideration of the fundamental principles and guaranteed freedoms.

Celebrating Constitution Day is a used as a teachable moment at BCF, officials say, highlighting the accomplishments of the past and incorporating those lessons learned into making a difference in the future.
