Rahall to lecture at WVU Tech in honor of Constitution Day
WVU Tech’s annual Constitution Day and Citizenship Day celebrations will include a guest lecture from former Congressman Nick Rahall, who served for nearly 40 years and finished his congressional career as the longest-serving member of the U.S. House of Representatives in the state’s history.
Rahall will talk about the constitution and share ways that students, faculty and staff can get involved in the legislative process. He will speak on Monday, September 18 at 3 p.m. in Carter Hall.
Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is celebrated each year on September 17 to commemorate the signing of the Constitution in 1787 and recognize those who have become United States citizens. The commemoration began in the early 1940s and was expanded in 2004 to include learning opportunities for federal employees and college students under efforts led by the late Senator Robert C. Byrd.
