On September 17, 1787, the Constitution of the United States of America was signed by delegates in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In recognition of this historic event SPC will be hosting a Naturalization Ceremony on the Clearwater Campus at 10:00 am, Friday, September 16th in the Fine Arts Auditorium.
Please join us in welcoming over 120 new American citizens from all over the world as they take this monumental step in our Constitutional legacy.
The Oath of Allegiance will be administered by the Honorable Elizabeth A. Kovachevich, United States District Judge. Our own students will offer a welcome to our visitors, sing the National Anthem and lead the new citizens in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Following the ceremony we will have an Information Session presented by Donald Jarrell, a Community Relations Officer, for the United States Citizenship Immigration Services. The information session will take place in the ES Building, room 127 and last approximately one hour. Officer Jarrell will review the entire process of becoming a United States Citizen.
Dr. Suzanne Preston organized this meaningful event. Dr. Preston also developed & teaches the Citizenship Ambassador classes where SPC Student Ambassadors help hopeful U.S. Citizens prepare for the Citizenship test. Each of these sessions offers our students a unique opportunity to learn about Citizenship.
