College of DuPage Celebrates the Legacy of MLK at Virtual Ceremony Jan. 18

Celebrate the memory and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during a virtual ceremony at 3 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 18. The ceremony will be streamed via the College’s Facebook page.

Featuring a keynote address by COD Professor of Justice Studies Theodore Darden, the ceremony includes the announcement of the four recipients of the College’s 2021 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship. The recipients were selected based on their demonstration of how the ideals taught and demonstrated by Dr. King have directly made an impact on their lives. The students will share how they have been inspired to make an impact on the lives of others based on the work of Dr. King. Interim Dean of Students Nathania Montes will provide the welcome and Student Diversity and Inclusion Manager David Swope will serve as emcee.

Scholarships are made possible by the College of DuPage Foundation, The Latino Outreach Center, and The Center for Student Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

We count on your support for student scholarships, expansion and enrichment of programs, and other education essentials.
