BIO

MLK PROGRAM FOCUS:
“From this day forward our dedication
must be deep, our commitment sure
and our action certain.  God’s work
and way are contemporary in every age.
There is no waiting for tomorrow
– it is blasphemous to shunt the
expectations from our time to another
– it is cowardly and without faith to cry
that the situation will adjust itself.
Our Time under God is Now!”
Dr. Earnest A. Smith

Scripture: Joshua 24:15

Congratulations to the following Awardees who
will be recognized at the MLK Program!
