Macon County's Human Resource Council will hold its annual Martin Luther King Day Celebration this Sunday at First United Methodist Church on Harrison Avenue in Franklin. The event, which is slated to begin at 3 p.m., will feature East Franklin Elementary Principal Shirley Ann West Parks as the guest speaker.
“It is an absolute honor to be chosen as the Martin Luther King Jr. celebration keynote speaker,” said Parks. “Not only because of the true momentousness of the occasion, but because of how respected Dr. King is by all of the people in our wonderful nation. Martin Luther King Jr. gave all of us a challenge to love, respect and nurture each other which is something that not only my speech, but my life is modeled after through my career in education.”
