Justice Lewis and students
FLORIDA KEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGE hosted a Constitution Day celebration September 17 to commemorate the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution. Coordinated by FKCC business law instructor and attorney Stephen Muffler, Constitution Day activities aimed to educate participants about their rights under the Constitution and encourage habits of being a good citizen. The program featured Monroe County Court Judge Wayne Miller and Justice Fred Lewis, pictured to the right, speaking to Key West High School students taking a government class at FKCC. “The U.S. Constitution is the blueprint of our country, market system, and free society,” Muffler said. “It acts as the common denominator for all Americans, regardless of our differences.” The City of Key West’s Citizens Review Board donated free pocket Constitutions for the event. All attendees were able to register to vote with the help of representatives from the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office, and lunch was provided by the Monroe County Bar Association.
