Walsh University Constitution Day Explores the “Land of Opportunity” through Conversation with Community Leaders

Walsh University’s Multicultural Affairs is pleased to announce Stark County Prosecutor Kyle L. Stone and North Canton Mayor Stephan Wilder as the 2021 Constitution Day guest speakers.  These local leaders will share their career journeys and why they pursued public service. Stone is Stark County’s first black prosecutor, and Wilder is a retired police chief.  Both men have made significant contributions to the greater community.  

Walsh University’s Student Government President Derek Deyling, Vice President Chris Villarreal and Vice Senate Chair Skyler Stewart will serve as facilitators.  The presentation will take place on Friday, September 17, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. in the Barrette Business and Community Center on campus. This event is free and open to the public.  The first 100 guests to arrive will receive a free pocket-size U.S. Constitution booklet.  

Walsh University’s Constitution Day event is held annually to commemorate the signing of the Constitution on September 17, 1787, and to recognize all those who have become U.S. citizens either through naturalization or by coming of age.  Constitution Day, also known as Citizenship Day, is a federal holiday observed every year on Sept. 17 unless that date falls on a weekend.
