Posted: January 17, 2014
In recognition of Martin Luther King Day, Monday, Jan. 20,
Gannon University will proudly host a series of memorial events. A
prayer service will begin at 9 a.m. in the Mary, Seat of Wisdom
Chapel, 520 Peach St. The prayer service is open to the public.
Following the service, a City-wide Memorial March will begin at
10 a.m. The March will start in Perry Square and end at the MLK
Center located at W. Third and Chestnut streets.
To end the day, at 11 a.m. a Memorial Lunch will be served in
the Yehl Alumni Room in the Waldron Campus Center, 124 W. Seventh
St. During lunch, donations for the School Supply and Student
Reward Drive will be accepted. This drive collects school supplies
and small "treasures"-- new/gently used backpacks, stickers, fancy
pencils/pens, and small gift cards for teachers/mentors--for
student rewards and incentives.
Immediately following the Prayer Service, interviews will take
place in Perry Square before the Memorial March begins.
