The 11th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Community Celebration at MidAmerica Nazarene University will be held Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017, at 9:30 a.m., at College Church of the Nazarene at 2020 E. Sheridan in Olathe. The public is invited to join MNU students, faculty, staff and community leaders at this free event.
Each year at this event MNU presents its Martin Luther King Jr. Living Legacy Award. This year’s recipient is Rev. Marvin Daniels, executive director of The Hope Center of Kansas City, Missouri. For the past 18 years, The Hope Center has served more than 500 families and 2,000 youth on Kansas City’s east side, with medical, educational and urban development issues.
Daniels will be the event’s featured speaker, presenting thoughts on “Lights of Hope.” In addition, MNU’s 2016-2017 Martin Luther King Jr. Leader Scholars will be recognized at the event. MNU established this scholarship program 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 Todd Garrett at email@example.com or (913) 971-3462.
