Elected and appointed officials, community activists, ministers, students, instructors, parents, churches, contest judges, and other community members, our Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration was a success because of you.

Special thanks to Mr. Bennie Perry, vice principal of Collins Middle School, for such a dynamic speech. What a powerful message to all of us. Thank you also to Mr. Bennie Perry’s daughters for introducing our speaker, their father.

To the students who participated in the “I Have a Dream” Oratory Contest, you are all winners! Your presentations were awesome. We do appreciate you for participating in the contest. You took the time to learn the speech, stand in front of a large audience and recite the words of Dr. King so beautifully. Thank you again for your participation in the Oratory Contest. We look forward to seeing you in 2013.
