Tuesday, September 17, 2013 marked the 226th anniversary of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution. To commemorate this mark in history, Panola held a noon ceremony in the Q. M. Martin Auditorium. Opening the event were performances of the National Anthem and “America the Beautiful” by the Panola College band and choir, directed by Mike McGowan and Sandra Bauer. Brian Naples, government professor, hosted the event, and introduced guest speaker, retired U. S. Ambassador Gene Christy from Midland, TX.

Ambassador Christy recounted several memories from his time as an Ambassador, involving tales of his traveling with the Embassy to many areas of the world such as Indonesia, Haiti, and Moscow. At the conclusion of his remarks he answered questions from the audience.

Naples said it was an honor to have Ambassador Christy speak at Panola College on this important day in History.
