Chemeketa is honoring the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
President Julie Huckestein shared this message with employees.
Monday, January 15, is our national holiday in remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His impact on the nation and the world will never be forgotten. I am grateful to him for his vision and tireless efforts to make our nation a better place for all.
His "I Have a Dream" speech is legendary as he connected his hopes for the future of his children, his hopes for our nation, and his hope for the equality of all people. As we know, his work continues through so many others who carry on his work.
Below is a link to his speech:
Please attend the Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration on January 25th from 1-3 pm on the Salem campus in the Student Center. The focus this year is on Hunger at Chemeketa, and how we as a campus community help and support our students who have food insecurities.
