Presbyterian College will celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a virtual convocation on Wednesday, Jan. 27 and a day of service on Saturday, Jan. 30.
MLK Day of Service
“One of Dr. King’s most well-known quotes simply states, ‘Everybody can be great because everybody can serve,'” said Rev. Racquel Gill, with the Office of Religious Life and Multicultural Community Engagement at PC.
“Service is at the core of who we are as a campus. As we seek to live, work, and learn in the Clinton community, it is also incumbent on us to serve this community whenever it is possible.”
PC students will volunteer at numerous locations in Laurens County, including the Swamp Rabbit Trail with the Laurens County Trails Association, Habitat for Humanity, and the Humane Society.
“Although the formal date to celebrate Dr. King’s birthday has passed, we should take time as a campus to honor his life. MLK Service Day is one way we seek to do that,” Gill said.
Students will wear masks at all times, even while serving. All service opportunities will be held outside with limited attendance to adhere to social distancing and gathering guidelines.
