Two events related to Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday will be happening in January 2018.
The first is a day of service on the actual holiday.
The MLK Convocation and Community Celebration, at the Bohm on the 29th, will start at 7 p.m. Michael Williams, ’78, former mayor of the City of Albion and a current Albion College trustee, will deliver the convocation address. Williams (right) currently serves as president and CEO of Orchards Children’s Services, Michigan’s premier foster-care and adoption agency. He has spent much of his career in youth development, with special focus on disadvantaged children and teens. Williams served two terms as Albion’s mayor in the 1990s and is a past member of the Albion College Alumni Association Board. Williams has also been inducted twice into the Albion College Athletic Hall of Fame, and he received the Distinguished Alumni Award in 1997.
