Sept 17 is Constitution Day and Citizenship Day

Mike Watson sends a reminder that September 17 is Constitution Day (and Citizenship Day).
On September 17, 1787, the Founding Fathers signed the U.S. Constitution. For over 200 years, the Constitution has served as the supreme law of the land. The Constitution, along with the Bill of Rights and other amendments, define our government and guarantee our rights.

Each year, on September 17, Americans celebrate Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. In addition, September 17-23 is also recognized as Constitution Week. During this time, USCIS encourages Americans to reflect on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and what it means to be a U.S. citizen. (www.uscis.gov)

Hopkins pledges Legacy of Hope as President of CU

By Gerard Flanagan

Campbellsville, KY - Dr. Joseph Hopkins was in what he called his "dream job" as dean of the School of Arts at Samford University in Birmingham, AL, when he was told about an opening for the presidency at Campbellsville University.

At first, the opening wasn't on Hopkins' radar, but as he talked with a search agent about the job and the university, Hopkins said "God began to work in my heart as I heard how CU was living out its bold mission."

Nearly a year later, on Friday, September 16, 2022, Hopkins was officially inaugurated as the 12th president of Campbellsville University in Ransdell Chapel.
