Six students received the MLK Leader Scholar Scholarship and Dr. Bobby L. Love, Sr., pastor of the historic Second Baptist Church of Olathe, was honored with the Martin Luther King Jr. Living Legacy Award. 

MNU's Community Chapel service was a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Jan. 21, 2020. This was the 14th annual community celebration which included community members, civic and business leaders who joined students in the event. 

Heritage Choir, led by Dr. Christopher Smith, associate professor of music, sang two selections to the delight of the audience. Dr. Victoria Haynes, professor of nursing and coordinator of diversity & cultural competency, introduced six new MLK Leader Scholars. The students were each awarded a scholarship of the same name. 

Dr. Bobby Love, Sr., was honored with the Martin Luther King Jr. Living Legacy Award for his 30 years of distinguished service in Kansas and as pastor of the historic Second Baptist Church (established circa 1868). Love's message was titled Remembering the Dream. He presented numerous illustrations of Dr. King's courage and faith while reminding the audience to live out the message of King's mission.
