This year’s event will include an opening recognition honoring Dr. King, naming of the 2021 event scholarship recipients, and a discussion around equity and inclusion work being done to support students at SPSCC. Professor powell will then share a message with time for Q&A before the event concludes. The community is invited to join in this free virtual event.
