The Kosciusko/Attala County Dr. MLK Committee will host its Annual Birthday Celebration on Monday, January 17, 2022, with a parade and public program in downtown Kosciusko. This year’s theme is “Love in Action has Changed Lives through His Dream.” The parade will begin at 10 a.m. on West Jefferson Street. The public is invited to participate by decorating their cars and joining the parade route.
The program will follow in the parking lot across from Craft’s Cleaners. All attendees must remain in their vehicles and wear masks at all times. In case of bad weather, the program will move to the Oprah Winfrey Boys and Girls Club.
Speakers for the program will be the senior essay winners from Ethel High School, Kosciusko High School, and McAdams High School. A $500 scholarship will be awarded to each winner.
Seniors are asked to read a book about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and write a 400-word essay highlighting the 2022 theme, “Love in Action has Changed Lives through His Dream.” Essays are to be turned in by Thursday, January 13, 2022. You may leave it in the office at your school or mail it to Dr. MLK Committee, P. O. Box 734, Kosciusko, MS 39090.
