MLK Breakfast 2008 (2)

The UNL McNair Scholars had the privilege of attending the 15th annual Martin Luther King Breakfast on January 18th. Students and staff listened to inspirational speeches by Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler, UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman, and keynote speaker Vice Chancellor Juan Franco, among others. Dr. King’s invaluable contributions to society and his enduring legacy were honored by all of the speakers. “We can change the world one little act at a time,” said Dr. Franco as he encouraged all of us to take action in our own lives. As this new year begins, let us all find ways that we can contribute to the fulfillment of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Dream.
