Saginaw Valley State University has partnered with regional businesses, chambers of commerce and community foundations to work together to host a celebration of the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. The fifth annual Great Lakes Bay Regional event will feature a peace march, keynote speaker and scholarship award ceremony.
Attendees will include students, community supporters, business and civic leaders throughout the region. This collaborative effort of the Great Lakes Bay Region replaces several individual community events that have annually commemorated Dr. King, which is extremely beneficial to the various funders who support these events.
Each year the recipients of the MLK Scholarship recite a memorable speech given by Dr. King.
