Missouri Southern hosts its 19th annual Dr. Martin Luther King breakfast.
Students, faculty and community members were all welcomed to celebrate the legacy of the civil rights activist. Lyle Foster from Missouri State University was a guest speaker at the event and spoke on the community banding together for change. Program organizer Lori Musser says the institution looks forward to celebrating the event every year to remind MSSU students of the importance of being a part of the community.
“We want to always continue to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on this special day. Along with encouraging people to get out and provide volunteer opportunities and service hours in the community,” says Musser.
After the breakfast, MSSU students had the option to finish out the holiday by doing some community service. Students could volunteer with the Salvation Army, Spring River Christian Village or the Lion Co-Op to help the community today.
