Join us on campus on Monday, January 16, for “A Day On, Not a Day Off,” a commemoration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The keynote speaker for this day of reflection, growth, and service will be Pamela Bates Porch, Assistant Pastor at St. James Industrial M.B. Church in Chicago. The program will begin at 10:30 a.m. in Sherman Hall. Entry is through the E wing.

Students will help distribute the collected canned goods to families in need immediately following the commemoration program. Donations can also be made to Student Life from now until the day of the event. For more information, call 708.534.4551 or email
