Limestone Students Ready to Go Fly a Kite in Celebration of Constitution Day 2010

constitutionLimestone College students will celebrate Constitution Day 2010 by showcasing their creativity.

From 10 am-2 pm on the Limestone front campus, students will unveil and fly original kites designed to represent portions of the Constitution. The College is providing Campus Bookstore prizes for most creative and effective kites. The students will also emulate the nation's Founding Fathers by signing an enlarged copy of the Constitution.


Dr. David Woods, Professor of Criminal Justice at Limestone and Chair of the College's Social and Behavioral Sciences Department, is the creator of this year's Constitution Day activities at Limestone. "The reaction from the students has been very favorable," he said. "To be honest, I was just trying to think of something fun and educational for our students to become involved in. I think the kite component offers numerous opportunities for creativity: for example, a kite in the shape of a mouth could symbolize freedom of speech; kites in the form of religious symbols could highlight freedom of religion."
