As the country prepares for another presidential election, join Mr. Mike Longo, Resurrection Religious Studies teacher and Chamber Ensemble director, in the upcoming adult enrichment course.  

 This Fall 2016 Adult Education Course will look at the Office of the Presidency. Course participants will explore questions such as: How has the Office of the Presidency shaped the people who have occupied it? How have the Presidents themselves redefined the Office? What historical events and what type of character help to make what history has measured as a "great" president and what can we learn about the direction of race relations in our country with the twice-elected first bi-racial president?
The cost is $50 and all community members are welcome. 
Registration and details available here.
