Independence Day 2022

Fourth of July / Independence Day graphic

On Monday, July 4, we will celebrate the federal holiday of Independence Day. Most public organizations and schools, including Henry Ford College, encourage employees and students to celebrate this as a day away from work activities. The College will be closed.

It is our tradition to share background information and reflections on major holidays that are part of our community's celebrations. This helps us understand more about the many diverse cultures that make up our community.

Learn more about Independence Day, sometimes called the Fourth of July, from:

  1. President Kavalhuna's 2020 reflection or 2019 reflection about the holiday.

  2. President Kavalhuna and Robert Yahrmatter's 2021 video about the holiday (below).
