In honor of Constitution Day, West Hempstead High School welcomed guest speaker Susan Gottehrer to a pair of classes on Sept. 17. Gottehrer is the director of the Nassau County Chapter of the New York Civil Liberties Union.

During Mike Paul’s second period 11th grade history class and Colin Grey’s third period AP Government class, Gottehrer focused her discussion with the students on understanding the United States Constitution in addition to the 7 Articles and what was represented in each. She explained to both classes the movement from the 7 Articles to the Constitution.

At the end of each class, students were able to further their knowledge with questions for Gottehrer and discussions as a group before she provided a pocket U.S. Constitution for each student to take home.
