Students Reflect on Constitutional Rights Through Sumner Bar Program

Nine Hendersonville High School students and two students from the Paralegal Education program at Volunteer State Community College participated in the Sumner County Bar Association’s seminar, A Re-Examination of the Mary Surratt Trial. The students viewed the film “The Conspirator” and listened to a panel discussion on the constitutional rights that Surratt was denied during her trial. The panel was moderated by Judge Tom E. Gray and included Judge Dee David Gay, attorneys James E. Mackler, David Raybin and Justice Penny White. The Tennessean has the story.
