BVU hosts breakfast event in honor of Martin Luther King

Tuesday, January 16, 2001

Buena Vista University will sponsor "Dream the Dream: A Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration of Service Breakfast" on Monday, Jan. 22 at 7:30 a.m.

The community is welcome to attend this free breakfast, designed to foster an environment that will inspire us all to unite, celebrate and serve one another.

The breakfast is just one of the many ways BVU is paying tribute to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. this year.

On Jan. 10, BVU's director of intercultural programs, Leon Williams, presented "Shattered Dreams," taking on the persona of Dr. King as he would address today's society. On Jan. 15, students gathered to learn about Dr. King's contributions through a fun game show format.

After the breakfast on Monday, the celebration will continue with a day-long series of outreach assemblies in the Storm Lake schools, performed by Storm Lake Middle School students from the Tornado Learning Club (TLC) and BVU students enrolled in the course. "Dream the Dream: Servant Leadership and the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

The breakfast will be held in Dows Grand Ballroom in the Harold Walter Siebens Forum on the BVU campus. Admission is free.

For more information, contact Maggie Baker, BVU's director of community service at 749-2443.
