Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, Jr. will be the featured speaker during the 30th annual Kosciusko County, Ind., Martin Luther King Day community luncheon. Sponsored by The Committee to Commemorate Martin Luther King (CCMLK), the event will be from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., Monday, January 15, at the Manahan Orthopedic Capital Center at Grace College, Winona Lake, Ind. Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to attend the event at no cost. The first 300 attendees will receive a complimentary lunch.
Hill is the first African American male elected attorney general in the State of Indiana. With a total of 1,643,689 votes, Hoosiers made him the top vote-getter of any elected official in state history. Originally from Elkhart, Ind., Hill is former Elkhart County prosecutor and a graduate of Indiana University. Mr. Hill will speak on how his life and career have been impacted by the teachings of Dr. King and how Dr. King’s influence still effects leadership in our state today.
“We are honored that AG Hill has decided to spend his MLK Day in Warsaw,” stated John Bryan Lowe, III, president of the CCMLK. “We strive to bring dynamic, relevant speakers to our community to honor Dr. King. We know that AG Hill will offer a unique perspective that will be inspirational to many in attendance.”
In addition to Dr. Hill’s address, the Warsaw Community Schools choir will perform and the winner of the 2018 CCMLK scholarship will be announced. The annual scholarship is awarded to a Kosciusko County high school student who demonstrates extraordinary citizenship, exemplifies the principles taught by Dr. King and intends to pursue a college degree.
CCMLK event doors will open at 11 a.m. For those unable to attend the event in person, a live stream will be available at facebook.com/OnlineWarsaw.
