Each year, we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Legacy at the first chapel service of the spring semester, in part to recall and recognize his historic visit to our campus in January of 1968, and in part to remind ourselves that Dr. King was, first and foremost, a preacher of the gospel, and a pastor to his flock. It was at the invitation of our then-chaplain, Dr. James Udy, that Dr. King came to our campus, and we seek to recognize each year that it was a chapel service at which Dr. King spoke on that occasion.

Mr. Will Fenton-Jones, Multicultural Ministries Director of the East Ohio Conference UMC will provide the message for the Chapel Worship Service on Jan.25th. The service will also include prayer, scripture reading and song from our students and other campus community members.
