Morehead State University will celebrate the life, dream and vision of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, Jan. 17.
The theme of the celebration is “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?” This year’s theme is a continuation of the themes from the 2009 and 2010 MLK Jr. Unity in the Community Service.
The event will begin with the traditional march at 6:30 p.m. at the Little Bell Tower on the MSU campus. After brief remarks, participants will travel to the Morehead United Methodist Church, 227 West Main Street, for the unity service, which is set to begin at 7 p.m. or as soon as group reaches the church. A reception will follow the program.
The program will feature Dorothy B. Wilson as the speaker.
Wilson is an accomplished businesswoman, having worked in major corporate and nonprofit positions for nearly 30 years. She is regional vice president of the largest Goodwill Industries enterprise in the world and is responsible for 400 employees, more than 45,000 program participants and a $25 million division in Southeastern Wisconsin and Metropolitan Chicago. All of the organization’s workforce development, vocational training, senior citizens and disability programs are under her supervision.
Following the program, MSU President Wayne D. Andrews and Dr. Francene Botts-Butler, director of Multicultural Student Services, will offer closing remarks.
