To honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., dozens of Oglethorpe students and alumni participated in service trips and activism around Atlanta.
Organized by A_LAB Civic Engagement and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., more than 50 students spent their day off on Monday volunteering with Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture and Books For Africa.
A group also attended the Center for Civil and Human Rights on Sunday to learn more about important civil rights leaders, sites, and history.
Students participating in the MLK Day of Service included:
Thi Minh Nguyen
One Oglethorpe alumna also continues to leave an impact on her community. Georgia House representative Dar’shun Kendrick ’04, who was sworn-in for a fifth term January 14th, spoke at the Atlanta Women’s March on Saturday, also attended by members of the Oglethorpe community.
