Carrying a personal copy of the US Constitution wherever he goes, Nick Clooney — American journalist — believes 8th grade students must better understand the Constitution’s importance to a strong nation and that’s why he is coming to Nashville to participate in the 917 Society’s short film which is being produced for viewing on Wednesday, September 17, Constitution Day, across Tennessee by 8th grade students studying civics.
Clooney and 917 Society Director Joni Bryan intend to improve students’ appreciation for the role the Constitution plays in American government.
The 917 Society held their cocktail party kick-off fundraiser. Special guests of honor were Nick and Nina Clooney. The elegant affair was held at the awe-inspiring OZ Nashville. Lora Miller of Fluff provided the event planning and décor with Flavor providing the catering. Pam Lambert served as bartender. Teri Reid played jazz piano as the guest enjoyed the hors d'oeuvres, wine and celebrity guests. J.R. Roper served as the emcee and Lexus Nashville provided transportation for Mr. and Mrs. Clooney while they were in Nashville.
