Clayton State University Assistant Professor of Teacher Education Dr. Mary Hollowell and students will once again be hosting approximately 180 students from Clayton County’s Rex Mill Middle School as part of the University’s celebration of Constitution Days.
The visit by the younger students marks the third consecutive year that Hollowell has invited Rex Mill Middle to participate in the University’s celebration of Constitution Days. This year’s visit will be on Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 9:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The middle school students will arrive via school buses at 9:45 a.m. at Spivey Hall, and will start with small group activities led by the Clayton State education students. From 10:30 a.m. until noon, the middle schoolers will attend one of the major Constitution Day events – the two constitutional debates, led by the Clayton State debate team, in the ballrooms of the Student Activities Center. The two debates will center on the following two issues; 1) Should national officeholders have ethical qualifications? 2) Should naturalized citizens be allowed to be president of the United States?
Following a brown bag lunch, the visitors from Rex Mill will be taking a campus tour from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., and then it will be back on the buses to return to the middle school.
