On September 17, 2018 Over hundred students and staff gathered in Palau Community College Assembly Hall to listen to Her Excellency Amy J. Hyatt, U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Palau giving a special presentation on the history of the U.S. Constitution as a way to honor the U.S. Constitution Day. Ambassador Hyatt explained that the first document that held U.S. together was the “Articles of Confederation” that predates the U.S. Constitution. It was written in the aftermath of winning the Revolutionary War which ended in 1783. The document offered power to the states and for the individual colony. She reiterated that people realized that this is not a strong way to organize a government and were vulnerable to outside attacks from foreign countries. This Article of Confederation is similar to today’s European Union in which a gathering of individual countries meet to discuss vital issues and are given significant amount of power. Following Ambassador Hyatt’s lecture were film showing titled “In Search of Liberty”, “The Making of the Constitution, Understanding U.S. Constitution, and Constitution Hall Pass (The Bill of Rights). Students and staff were offered light snacks courtesy of PCC Cafeteria and Civic Action Team 36-03, and the U.S. Embassy in Palau. Palau Community College extends its special thanks to Ambassador Amy J. Hyatt and Civic Action Team 36-03 for making U.S. Constitution Day celebration memorable.
