Sinclair Celebrates Constitution Day

Dayton, OH – Sinclair Community College will host U.S. Federal District Judge Sharon Ovington in a celebration of Constitution Day on Thursday, September 17.

Sinclair’s annual celebration will include a panel discussion on selected constitutions from around the world and how they compare with our own U.S. Constitution. Panelists include: Jennifer Sooy, J.D.; Kathleen Sooy, J.D.; Derek Petrey, PhD; Laurel Mayer, PhD, and; Charles Curran, former Ohio Legislator and County Commissioner.
