Bristol Campus Celebrates Constitution Day

Nov 12, 2013

The Bristol Campus celebrated Constitution Day on Tuesday, September 17th with a hefty dose of patriotism.  Two ceremonies took place in honor of the ratification of the United States Constitution by the U.S. Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787.  Each ceremony featured the Pledge of Allegiance led by members of the Tennessee High School Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps and honorary guest speakers.

State Representative Jon Lundberg, a captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve, distributed flags to the students and spoke about what the Pledge of Allegiance and the United States Constitution means to him and his family.  Mark Diddle, who holds a Master of Divinity (M.Div.), discussed how his experiences abroad confirmed to him that U.S. citizens are indeed unique from citizens of other countries.  He said that Americans enthusiastically “try to share our interpretation of freedom with the rest of the world.” 

Veteran Mark Diddle speaks to students in the student lounge at the Bristol Campus.
