REMEMBERING REV. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Tuesday, January 16, 2001

Members of a crowd play a unique version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" based on facts from the life and work of Dr. King during a holiday celebration at Buena Vista University Monday.

The event opened with a spiritualist version of "We Shall Overcome," and included statements by BVU students and staff. Julia Keehner, Vice President for Enrollment and Student Services, recalled King saying "The time is always right to do what is right." She urged students and the community to renew that vow to end racism and discrimination. "It continues to be the right time to do what is right," she said. Student Tiffanie Drayton said that an institution of higher learning is the ideal place to realize King's dream, saying that BVU has made great progress, but cannot rest until no student feels unaccepted. "BV has the chance to become something great," she said.
