Max A. Shacknai COVE Honors Legacy of MLK with Afternoon of Service

By Wil Stowers on February 3, 2017

On Friday, January 27th 2017, members of the faculty, staff and student body joined the Max A. Shacknai COVE’s biannual Afternoon of Service. The Afternoon of Service which takes place in the fall is in remembrance of 9/11 whereas the one which takes place in the spring commemorates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
