Annual MLK Celebration Honors Parkland Faculty

mlk-flyer2015Parkland College is a planning committee partner for the Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Countywide Celebration. Parkland Director of Human Resources Kathleen McAndrew and I serve as representatives for the College on the committee each year.

As the City of Champaign’s website explains, this commemorative annual event celebrates the life and work of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and recognizes excellent community service and humanitarianism by persons and groups in our community. Hundreds of residents attend each year.

This year, during the 14th annual event, Parkland’s own Brian Nudelman, an English professor and our service learning coordinator, will be receiving the Doris Hoskins Prestigious Community Service Award! The award honors individuals and organizations that engage in outstanding volunteerism and, in so doing, contribute to the well-being of the Champaign County community. We congratulate Brian on his hard work and service to the college and community residents. Below are the event details:
