State MLK celebration Thursday in Columbus, Ohio
Please join at noon Thursday, Jan. 15 for the 30th annual Ohio Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Celebration at Trinity Episcopal Church, located at the corner of Third and Broad streets.
Highlights of the 30th annual celebration will be speeches given by Director Andre T. Porter of the Ohio Department of Commerce and three Ohio students who took first place in their respective age divisions at the 2014 Statewide MLK Oratorical Contest. If you have never attended the event and heard these young orators speak, you are in for a treat. The messages shared by the students are inspiring, as is the entire event. In addition, seven Ohioans will be recognized for carrying on King’s legacy.
The event and the oratorical contest are sponsored by the Ohio Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission, which receives administrative support from the Equal Opportunity Division.
