The EKU Cultural Center will host a 7 p.m. candlelight vigil Tuesday in honor of King at the Powell Building Plaza.
“A few moments will be taken to remember the man and the dream,” said Jerry Wallace, EKU spokesperson. “We will also be remembering the lives lost in the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in Newport, Conn., and sending our prayers out for the friends and families who loved them.”
Light refreshments and hot drinks will be served. The prayer service will be moved inside the Meditation Chapel in the event of inclement weather.
EKU’s third-annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Award Banquet will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Keen Johnson Ballroom.
The EKU Cultural Center will host the event, which will be accompanied by music from the EKU Jazz Ensemble and followed by award presentations with music, words and songs that reflect the message of King and this year’s chosen theme: “Voices of a New Generation.”
Those attending should RSVP to email@example.com or call 622-4373 and include the number of guests in your party. Or, attendees can visit the Cultural Center in Room 110 of the Powell Building.
