26th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration to be held at Marcus

Post Ad – Top

The 26th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration will be held Monday evening at Marcus High School.

The free civic event is a non-political, inter-faith event to celebrate the ideals of Dr. King, such as eliminating prejudice, equality, sustainable development and international peace. The theme for this year’s event is “Loving the Diversity in Our World.”

A “Parade of Nations” – orchestrated by The Colony High School Multicultural Club and Hindu Educational Foundation – is scheduled to kick off the festivities at 6:30 p.m., according to a district news release. Any LISD student is welcome to participate in the parade and may carry their country’s flag and wear native clothing. Check-in for the parade is at 6 p.m.

Entertainment will include more than 50 LISD students, including the Downing Middle School Orchestra, Hebron High School Black Student Association, Marcus High School Step Team and MHS Choir. Boy Scouts from the Lewisville High School feeder pattern will make the presentation of the colors.
