In recognition of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
By Kathy Snyder
In recognition and in celebration of the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., State Rep. Gwyn Clarke-Reed, District 92, with the help of Andrea Knowles, Legislative Assistant and Betty Carr, a volunteer, presented backpacks to students from the public elementary schools in District 92. One student from each school was chosen to receive a backpack with school supplies. Wells Fargo Bank donated the back-packs that were presented to these students; this is an annual event held by State Rep. Clarke-Reed.
The students were selected by each of their teachers because they demonstrated the characteristics and qualities of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
