2024 MLK Legacy Celebration
February 22 @ 7:00 PM
The 2024 MLK Legacy Celebration will take place on Thursday, February 22, 2024, at 7:00 p.m. in Weber Theater. The keynote address is “Say Yes to Liberation.” It will be led by Mr. William Dickerson II, Co-Executive Director of Massachusetts Communities Action Network (MCAN), a statewide faith-based community organizing non-profit.
As part of our annual event, we will award Wheaton’s prestigious MLK Legacy Award to two outstanding community members. We welcome your nominations for this award. The award is presented to one student and one faculty or staff member who exemplifies Dr. King’s values through their actions and leadership.
If you would like to nominate someone for the award, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the nominee(s) and a brief description (one paragraph is sufficient) of why you believe they should be recognized. All nominations should be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, February 5, 2024. You are welcome to submit as many nominations as you wish, as there are likely many deserving individuals in our community. The selection committee comprises the President’s Council and DEAL leadership.
The event will also feature the MLK Legacy Student Creativity Showcase winners.
