Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s Arts, Lectures, and Programs Committee is proud to sponsor “My Rights and The Amendments,” on Friday, Sept. 16.
The event will be presented by Dr. Christina Jones and the Criminal Law class from 8-9 a.m., in Hyson Campus Center Room 302.
In recognition of Constitution Day, guests will learn about the United States and Ohio preambles, facts about the Constitution, and your rights as an American citizen. Knox County Common Pleas Court Judge Richard Wetzel will also speak to the importance of the document.
A complimentary breakfast will be available.
“The Arts, Lectures, and Programs Committee is excited Dr. Jones has agreed to coordinate this event. Her expertise and charismatic personality promise a fun, interactive presentation honoring the documents that protect our everyday rights,” said Jayme McMillan, Assistant Professor of Communication and Arts, Lectures, and Programs Committee Chair.
The Arts, Lectures, and Programs Committee offers a grant program to provide supplemental resources to departments, schools, and campus organizations to expose MVNU students to individuals who have expertise and life experiences that would not otherwise be available on campus.
