Henderson State University will observe Constitution Day Tuesday, Sept. 19, with a presentation by Robert Herzfeld, circuit court judge for Saline County. The program, entitled The Constitution: Not Perfect, but Not Too Shabby, will begin at 12:30 p.m. in Arkansas Hall.
Herzfeld received his undergraduate degree from the University of Mississippi and graduated with distinction from Emory Law School in 1998. He is serving his ninth year as Saline County circuit judge.
Herzfeld has family connections to Henderson State. His father graduated from Henderson in 1967, and his grandfather played center for the AIC Conference Champion Reddies before graduating in 1931.
Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is normally observed on Sept. 17, the day in 1787 that delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document in Philadelphia.
The event, which is free and open to the public, is presented locally by Henderson State’s Social Sciences Department. It is expected to conclude by 1:15 p.m.
