Today marks the 227th anniversary of the signing of one of the most famous and important documents in American history: the Constitution of the United States. 

So in honor of the signing of the Constitution, here are some fun facts about the document and signing:

--Of the spelling errors in the Constitution, “Pensylvania” next to the signers’ names is probably the most glaring.

--The U.S. Constitution has 4,400 words. It is the oldest and shortest written Constitution of any major government in the world.

--The Constitution was “penned” by Jacob Shallus, A Pennsylvania General Assembly clerk, for $30 ($726 today).

--The oldest person to sign the Constitution was Benjamin Franklin (81). The youngest was Jonathan Dayton of New Jersey (26).

--The first time the formal term “The United States of America” was used was in the Declaration of Independence.

--George Washington and James Madison were the only presidents who signed the Constitution.

--The Constitution contains 4,543 words, including the signatures and has four sheets, 28-3/4 inches by 23-5/8 inches each. It contains 7,591 words including the 27 amendments.

--The national government spent $4.3 million during the first session of Congress from 1789-1791. During the last year that George Washington was President of the United States (1796-1797), the entire cost of running the federal government was $5,727,000.

--The only other language used in various parts of the Constitution is Latin.

And don't forget that there is a Constitution Day event in room 7006 ABC from noon-1pm today.

On August 18 the Holocaust Remembrance and Education Committee and the office of the Vice President for Advancement sponsored a dedication ceremony for "The Last Dress," by Rachel Leathers, winner of the 2007 Max May Memorial Holocaust Art Contest.  This contest, sponsored by Renate Frydman, director of the Dayton Holocaust Resource Center in honor of her artist grandfather - a Holocaust survivor - is open to Dayton-area students in grades 5-12.  The Sinclair committee and the DHRC have worked closely together since the 1980s, sponsoring several annual campus events in commemoration of the Nazi Holocaust and to raise awareness of the dangers of hatred and prejudice.  

Rachel Leathers was a 14-year-old student at Chaminade-Julienne when she won the contest, and is now studying art at the Savannah (Georgia) College of Art and Design.  "The Last Dress," she says, was inspired by thoughts of the million and a half children who died in the Holocaust, often transported to death camps with nothing more than the clothes they were wearing.

Last night over a dozen students and their families gathered in building 12 for the Presidential & Virginia McNeal Scholarship award reception.

These students were hand selected based on outstanding student merit and nominations submitted by various high school staff, coaches, and mentors.

Congrats to everyone who took home an award last night! We look forward to having you on campus for classes this Fall! #TartanPride

Balancing academics and social life in high school can be tough, but two local grads totally kicked some major butt and earned their high school diploma AND their associates degrees from Sinclair at the same time! How cool is that?!

Jefferson Township High School students C.V. Mitchell IV (left) and Taylor Belle (right) graduated high school this year with their associates degree in liberal arts after enrolling in a dual credit program through their school.

And not only did both students graduate with high school and college credentials, they were both active students participating in several sports each and were part of the National Society for High School Scholars.

We couldn't be more proud of what these two young people have accomplished and look forward to seeing them succeed further as they move on to Ohio University and Wright State University.

Thanks to the Dayton Daily News for sharing the story! Full feature article here: http://www.daytondailynews.com/news/news/local/2-graduate-high-school-sinclair-simultaneously/ngh4p/

NEWS RELEASE: Ohio State and Sinclair Create Innovative UAS Partnership

OSU and Sinclair Partnership Focused in Data Analytics and Unmanned Systems

Dayton – Sinclair President Steve Johnson and The Ohio State University College of Engineering Dean David B. Williams announced today a strategic partnership between the two institutions. Ohio State and Sinclair will develop pathways from existing Sinclair Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) certificate and future associate degree programs into data analytics and geospatial precision agriculture programs. Additionally, Ohio State students will have the opportunity to take general education courses through Ohio State and, upon completing UAS technical courses at Sinclair, to earn a UAS certificate or degree through Sinclair.

“Ohio State University is a global leader in technology and education and this partnership can provide Sinclair with the resources and human talent necessary to take our UAS program to the next level,” Sinclair President Steve Johnson said. Sinclair recently received $4 million in state funding to renovate and expand their physical location on the Dayton campus to support the mission of the National Center for UAS Training and Education.

“Ohio State’s unmanned aircraft and data analytics expertise complements the strengths of Sinclair and the Dayton region in this important emerging industry,” said Ohio State College of Engineering Dean David B. Williams. “Our teaching, research and workforce development collaboration should serve as a model for our fellow institutions throughout the state.

The two institutions will also seek to expand upon existing UAS resources in airspace and UAS vehicles and will in the future seek a COA to fly over the Don Scott Airport and the Molly Caren Agricultural Facility to provide new and innovative precision agriculture programming.

Yesterday 20 members of the Sinclair Baseball team donated blood at the Community Blood Center as part of Sinclair Community College Athletics community service initiative. The Baseball team has done this for several years now and we are proud of the entire team, and the rest of the Sinclair Athletics program, for being leaders on and off the field.

How do you make the second week of classes better than the first? By offering up deep fried PB&Js.

No you did not misread that: the Tartan Marketplace is frying up peanut butter and jelly sandwiches this week.

So head on down to the Marketplace if you'd like to try some of that deep fried deliciousness!
