MNU’s 16th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Community Celebration at MidAmerica Nazarene University will be held Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022, at 9:30 a.m., at College Church of the Nazarene, 2020 E. Sheridan in Olathe. The public is invited to join students, faculty and staff at this event.

Each year at this event MNU presents its Martin Luther King Jr. Living Legacy Award. This year’s recipient and event speaker is Kyren Martin. Martin is a 2020 graduate of MNU and serves in various leadership roles for two churches in addition to his work as a program implementation manager at KidsTLC in Olathe.

The purpose of the event is to celebrate and encourage the legacy of Dr. King. Proceeds from event sponsorships fund a scholarship at MNU for persons from diverse ethnicities who wish to emulate Dr. King’s passion for learning and servant leadership. MNU Leader Scholars maintain their scholarship award by demonstrating academic and leadership qualities during their university studies.

Sponsorships are available for individuals and corporations. For questions about the event please contact Pete Brumbaugh at or (913) 971-3606.
