Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Ceremony Monday At OCC

Members of the Committee to Commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. are excited to host the community celebration Monday at the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center on the campus of Grace College.
It will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Doors will open at 11 a.m., and box lunches will be available free of charge for the first 500 in attendance.
According to a press release from Warsaw Community Schools, Charles Person, Atlanta, Ga., will be the featured guest speaker for the event.
Person is one of three living civil rights pioneers who participated in the original Freedom Rides to integrate interstate bus travel. His part in U.S. civil rights history influenced the policies and actions of the Kennedy administration and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Over 150 students from Kosciusko County will perform in different parts of the celebration. The annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarships also will be presented during the event. The scholarships will be awarded to current senior students who demonstrate scholastic excellence and who encompasses the heart of King through acts of community service and by enriching the lives of others.
This event is open to the public and free of charge. For additional information, contact CCMLK Committee Member Wendy Long at wlong@warsawschools.org or call 574-371-5098.
