In the annual Louisiana Tech University Constitution Day event, James W. Ceaser, the Harry F. Byrd Professor of Politics at the University of Virginia and director of the Program for Constitutionalism and Democracy, will explore the ways in which the Constitution is not only a document which establishes our basic institutions and rules of government. His presentation, titled “The Ties That Bind: What We Feel For Our Constitution,” explores how the Constitution is one of the chief sources of the national cohesion, an essential element binding together a diverse and pluralistic free society.
Area businesses, organizations and schools were awarded on Tuesday for their contributions to the Adopt-A-School program throughout the 2013-14 school year.
“The (AAS) program is so impressive,” Lincoln Parish School District Superintendent Danny Bell said. “It passes along a life lesson to our children that teaches them how important giving back to their community really is.”
The AAS program is designed for local entities to support area schools by providing supplies, amenities and other facilitations as well as promoting positive missions to help others and the environment.
