The Waynesburg University Stover Scholars announce the completion of their “The Rights That Are Ours: The Story of the Bill of Rights” video production in celebration of Constitution Day, Friday, Sept. 17.

The film can be viewed below:

“Constitution Day provides the Stover Scholars the opportunity to annually thoroughly examine an aspect of America’s constitutional tradition and creatively share their insights with the Waynesburg University community,” said Dr. Lawrence M. Stratton, Director of the Stover Center and Associate Professor of Ethics and Constitutional Law.
