MLK Weekend and Celebrating Events on Campus

January 14, 2022

It’s our first Friday back and we are easing into the semester with a long weekend.

Monday is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday and, in addition to celebrating the life of Dr. King, we celebrate Gabrielle Gregory and congratulate her on being named the Edna M Hart Keeper of the Dream. Gabrielle will be speaking at the MLK Holiday Kick Off event at 1pm at Citizens Field on Monday, January 17. Details of all the activities can be found at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission of Florida, Inc. website.

As always, there are many things happening in our school. We share a collection of some things to celebrate below and wish our Blue Wave community a happy and healthy long weekend.
