WGHS student groups, including Step Team, have been invited to participate in the upcoming MLK Celebration. This Sunday, Jan. 20, is the march and celebration in Webster and Rock Hill.

The event serves as a platform to honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King and the impact he has had on the community.

Beginning at 4:30 p.m. from City Hall, the one-mile march to Givens Elementary will kick off the celebration. The march will be followed by a dinner reception at 5 p.m. free of charge.

The Community Celebration program will begin promptly at 5:45 p.m., including song, dance and spoken word. Rev. Tracy Blackmon, pastor of Christ the King United Church of Christ in Florissant, MO, is the keynote speaker of the program.

Additional performances will follow including district students and a special community ensemble.

The public is encouraged to attend the 24th annual celebration.

Correction: The WGHS Chamber Choir did not preform at the MLK Celebration.
