MLK Keynote & Awards
The University of Mount Union’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Awards and Keynote Address will feature Lester Sanders, a motivational speaker
With the struggle for justice and equality still making national headlines 56 years later after King’s historic August 28, 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech at the March on Washington for jobs and freedom, Sanders will propose the question to this generation of students and to others present, “What Are You Going To Do: To Fulfill The Dream?"
Sanders will provide universal actions steps that one can take to make King’s dream a reality in their personal lives and the lives of others, nationwide and worldwide. It’s one thing to come together annually to celebrate the monumental life of Dr. King; but it’s another to consciously and physically make sure the dream of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness remain a reality for generations to come.
Sanders shares his message with thousands of teens and young adults every year at schools, conferences, college success events, organizations, camps
Each year the University presents the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Award to members of both the University of Mount Union community (student, faculty, staff) and the Alliance community who best embody the values and principles exemplified by Dr. King.
