MLK Celebration

St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley will host two celebrations in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Events are scheduled Tuesday, Jan. 16 and Thursday, Jan. 18, focused on a theme of “Together We Win
with Love for Humanity,” coinciding with the theme from MLK50 Forward.
On Jan. 16, the College will host MLK Awareness Day with interactive experiences for students designed to emphasize the historical context of King. Events and activities will be held in the Student Center Multipurpose Room from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
“We’ll have stations set up for students to learn more about Dr. King and history through games and activities,” said Dwayne Morgan, coordinator of student orientation and transition.
The community is invited to an MLK Celebration on Jan. 18 at 6 p.m. that will include a keynote address by Dr. Terrence Freeman, professor of engineering, STLCC-Florissant Valley. The event includes musical performances, as well as recitations by the winners of the annual North County Churches Uniting for Racial Harmony and Justice Oratorical Contest. Each year, NCCU welcomes students in grades 3-12 from area school districts to participate in the oratorical contest. A reception will follow the celebration. The MLK Celebration is free and open to the public.
“This year, our goal was to ensure the campus as well as the community will have an opportunity to come together and celebrate,” said Dr. Elizabeth Perkins, provost, STLCC- Florissant Valley. “We hope making this important celebration a multi-day event brings the community and the campus together.”
