Expanded community celebration is planned
The annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration will be Monday, Jan. 21. The keynote speaker is a Seaford native, Lt. Col. Clifton Everton. He was instrumental in bringing the first black student teacher to the Seaford School District.
“The theme for this year’s program is ‘United We Stand’,” according to Darrell Marshall, co-chairman. “While the purpose of the celebration has always been to build unity in our community, events of September 11 underscore that need.”
The committee planning the event also hopes to involve more of Sussex County this year. “Previously, the MLK celebration has drawn support from Western Sussex, primarily Seaford, Woodbridge, Delmar and Laurel,” said event co-chairman Willie Savage. “By working through the high school counselors and youth groups, we hope to involve more of the county.”
As in the past, in addition to a keynote speaker, there will be refreshments and uplifting musical selections. The event will include other respectful entertainment such as essay or poetry contests, liturgical dance and a fashion show. The fashion show, entitled, “Then and Now” will feature Norman Poole as the Master of Ceremonies, and promises to be a highlight. Granting of scholarships to area students will continue to be a significant part of the overall MLK Celebration Program.
