Manchester marks Constitution Day

with 10th Amendment panel

The public is invited to a panel discussion about the 10th Amendment at Manchester College’s annual Constitution Day program on Sunday, Sept. 19.  Starting at 7 p.m. in the upper College Union, a panel of Manchester faculty and legal counsel will discuss the 10th Amendment’s role in debates about the size of government and such “hot button” issues as health care and immigration.

The 10th Amendment states that powers not given to the federal government and not denied to individual states are reserved to the states or the people.

Panelists are Katherine A. Tinsley, associate professor of history; Leonard A. Williams, professor of political science; and Dale Carpenter, director of human resources and legal counsel.

The annual program commemorates Sept. 17, 1787, the day delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution of the United States of America.

The Department of History and Political Science is one of the oldest programs at Manchester College, and includes active participation in Mock Trial and Model United Nations. For more about the program, click here.
