MASON CITY, Iowa- The Constitution of the United States was signed on September 17 1787, though it is a day early, educators at North Iowa Area Community College are celebrating the 229th anniversary by teaching the public about the history.

Bennett Smith, a History and Political Science teacher at the school has been teaching the class for three years and says it has grown in popularity since it started.

“One of the things I really try to get across to the public is to it so important to understand what our individual liberties are and have those are balanced with the needs of the government and the public at large,” says Smith.

Smith says they will be holding a similar class in December to recognize the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
