The Frederick County Human Relations Commission will host the 17th Annual Naturalization Ceremony, which will see up to 100 individuals from dozens of different countries take the Oath of Allegiance to become naturalized American citizens. The ceremony will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 28, at Tuscarora High School, 5321 Ballenger Creek Pike, Frederick, Md.
This event, in partnership with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, will feature Dr. Theresa Alban, Superintendent for the Frederick County Public Schools, as the keynote speaker.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend to celebrate the hard work and accomplishment of the country’s newest citizens.
"For 17 years, the Human Relations Commission has hosted this phenomenal, life changing event. As we continue to engage, educate, and empower citizens of our community, we are honored to host this event once again. Citizenship and freedom hold a partnership that all should be afforded the opportunity to attain. The candidates that will be naturalized have each committed themselves to the history, values, integrity and strength that our country was founded upon to include liberty and justice for all," said Chairperson Angela Spencer, Human Relations Commission.
