Annual MLK Celebration at St. Andrews planning underway

Laurinburg, N.C. – The annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at St. Andrews Presbyterian College is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. on January 17, 2011 in Avinger Auditorium.

“This celebration, which will include music and spoken word reflections on the late civil rights leader’s impact on the world, serves as a culmination of events for the St. Andrews campus and local community,” said Rona Leach McLeod, planning committee chair. “Students, faculty and staff members will be spending the day working in service to non-profit organizations around the community. A brief report on how many volunteer hours were performed during the day will be included in this culminating event.”

While planning continues, confirmed performers for the celebration include the Cool Spring United Methodist Church All Male Choir, the Umoja Dance and Drumming Troupe, St. Andrews Pipe Major William Caudill and St. Andrews Associate Professor of Music William McConnell.

St. Andrews began a formal program of celebration in 2005. The day of service element was added last year to fully acknowledge the legacy left by Dr. King. It is in line with the college’s mission to “educate its students to be knowledgeable and imaginative servant-leaders well prepared for a lifetime of learning, leadership and service in an ever-changing and interdependent world.”
