Williams Baptist University students are encountering the Bill of Rights on their way to class this fall. The WBU Department of History set up the displays in honor of Constitution Day Sept. 17, and they will remain in the Maddox Center through October.
The displays, which feature all 10 amendments of the Bill of Rights, were made possible by a gift from Robert Norvell of Jonesboro. They line the Jerry D. Gibbens Atrium, a popular gathering spot for students in the Maddox Center.
Constitution Day is a federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens.
