“It is critical for the community to set aside time throughout the year, but especially as we reflect on the life and contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, to assess where we are with respect to issues of racial and social justice,” Ellis said. “I am honored to have the opportunity to share my thoughts on the role personal leadership plays on our current and future success as a community and society.”
The annual Peacemaker Awards will be also presented to 12 local high school students who are being recognized for their ability to resolve conflict in a positive way and assist in bridging cultural and social differences within their schools.
“Clark State has supported the MLK celebration over the years to not only honor Dr. King and the incredible sacrifice he made for civil rights, but to help recognize students who are ensuring his legacy continues,” said Ronald Gordon, dean of enrollment. “Students who receive the Peacekeeper Award are sharing Dr. King’s message of equality for all through their daily actions and it is noticed by others.”
