The grand opening for Union College’s Center for Civic Engagement is set for Friday, Sept. 11, and it will be a celebration of partnerships and service throughout the community. The event will feature Robert Hackett, president of The Corella & Bertram F. Bonner Foundation, as a guest speaker and Union’s newest civic partner.
“This is an important day for Union College and the Center for Civic Engagement to join with our community partners, our campus family and our service alumni so we can thank them for their work, their service and to reach out our hand to continue these great partnerships,” said Jodi Carroll, Director of The Center for Civic Engagement.
The event will begin at 3 p.m. on Sept. 11 at the Center’s office, located adjacent to Union’s campus on 100 Judge Street. Carroll is inviting Union’s partners and welcomes the public to join in the ceremonies as well. A ribbon cutting and reception will be held along with a special service of remembrance to recognize the events of Sept. 11, 2001, during which participants will be asked to show support for Knox County’s first responders.
