Join us this Friday, January 15, at Parkland College’s Student Union café (U Building), 2400 West Bradley Avenue in Champaign, from 4 to 5 p.m. The Cities of Champaign and Urbana, the Champaign County Board, Parkland College, and the University of Illinois invite you to attend the 15th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Countywide Celebration.
It is a new location this year, but as always, this event is free and open to the public. Please enter the U building through the entrance by the flagpole and bus stop facing the east side of the building. Parking is ample and the B1, B2, and B6 parking lots are nearest the new Student Union (U Building).
Area humanitarians to be honored at the celebration include Barbara Kessel, who will receive the James R. Burgess, Jr.–Susan Freiburg Humanitarian Award; Rohn Koester, who will receive the Doris Hoskins Prestigious Community Service Award; and Melany Jackson, who will receive the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Outstanding Achievement Award.
A reception will immediately follow the program. We hope to see you there!
[Marietta Turner is dean of students at Parkland College.]
