Florida Career College Constitution Day

Florida Career College Celebrates Constitution Day

Constitution Day (September 17) marks the anniversary of the Constitution’s formal approval by the Constitutional Congress in 1787. The Congress was made up of representatives from the 13 states that were the entire U.S. at the time. The event created a central federal government to replace a looser confederation of states. The week of September 13-19 is formally observed by colleges and universities throughout the nation with educational events about the Constitution. 2

Students and staff at Florida Career College kicked off the festivities by participating in a Constitution Day Trivia Challenge hosted by the Library Department. The students, who answered correctly, received “Smarties” for being so Constitution- Smart!

The Student Ambassadors and the Library department decorated the student break area with red, white and blue banners and with an over-sized replica of the U.S. Constitution. Students also received a scrolled replica of the original U.S. Constitution and quill pens as souvenirs to commemorate the occasion. 3

 

Congratulations to all the trivia winners and a big thank you to the Florida Career College-Pembroke Pines staff and students at the for participating in our Constitution Day activities. 4

Florida Career College Pembroke Pines Campus Student Ambassadors Host Fundraiser

It’s been a great month for Florida Career College Pembroke Pines Campus Student Ambassadors.

Florida Career College (FCC) Student Ambassadors of the Pembroke Pines Campus held a month-long school supply fundraiser to benefit local Broward County School, West Hollywood Elementary. The FCC Student Ambassadors delivered a huge crate of school supplies consisting of backpacks, notebooks, pencils, pens, crayons, and glue; essentially everything an elementary student would need during the academic year.

“The Principal Aimee Zekofsky and staff at West Hollywood Elementary were very excited and appreciative of the fundraising efforts done by our ambassadors,” said FCC-Pembroke Pines Executive Director James Branham. “At the Pines Campus we believe in encouraging our students to find opportunities to get involved.”

“We are thinking of setting up an outreach program with West Hollywood Elementary where the FCC Ambassadors volunteer their time reading books to the children,” said Margaret McCraw, Pembroke Pines Campus Library Assistant.

 

During the month-long supply drive, the Ambassadors posted flyers and unwaveringly communicated to students, faculty and staff about their commitment to aiding the students in need of back to school supplies at West Hollywood Elementary. “They are an awesome group of students and they did a great job of organizing and marketing the drive,” said Jim Branham. “Overall, a very successful effort…..very proud of the Student Ambassadors at the Pines Campus.”
