Georgia College hosts 2nd MLK community breakfast
MACON, Ga. -- Georgia College hosted the second annual Martin Luther King Jr. community breakfast Friday morning.
Community members and city leaders joined at the Magnolia Ballroom on campus, where local schools participated in an essay contest about Dr. King’s 1967 speech at Stanford University.
The Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce partnered with the college to host the event.
Organizers say they hope to continue the tradition.
"We are hosting it in order to bring light to our educational system, student leadership and community building," Dr. Veronica Womack said. "So we're very very excited to have several community partners, the chamber, the school system and we're hoping that we'll get bigger and better every year."
Four winning students read excerpts from their writings and received a certificate and trophy.
The event also included live gospel music.
