On Wednesday, February 6th, 2013, MIT will mark the 39th anniversary of its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. breakfast and program, which serves to honor Dr. King’s legacy with a yearly breakfast and by hosting an event the evening before to recognize a broad range of committed people who embody his ideals in service to the community.
Consider nominating an individual or group for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Leadership Award. All of MIT’s alumni/ae, undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff are eligible for nomination for this award. Both individuals and groups, including living groups and student and professional associations, may be considered. “Service to the community” is defined in the broadest sense and includes academic, research, religious, and secular contributions in which integrity, leadership, creativity, and positive outcome are apparent.
Nomination letters must be submitted by Saturday, December 15th, 2012, to Acia Adams-Heath at firstname.lastname@example.org or in Room NE18-985. For questions, contact Mrs. Adams-Heath or Professor John de Monchaux. Both are members of the MLK, Jr. celebration subcommittee and would be happy to assist. The MLK celebration subcommittee of the Committee on Race and Diversity will select all awardees, and the awards will be announced at the celebratory breakfast on February 6.
