Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Use me, God. Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself." -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today, we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King lived a mission of justice, unity, and equality, and his profound legacy inspires us to continue to be people with and for others. Dr. King’s messages of commitment to justice, love, and faith are echoed in the tenets of the Graduate at Graduation that we hope to form in our students at Jesuit High School.

Last Thursday, we honored Dr. King’s life and legacy with our all-school MLK Assembly. We are grateful for Mr. Douglas Brown, who visited us from Loyola High School of Los Angeles to deliver the keynote address. Mr. Brown spoke to our students about what it means to be an icon – and what it means to look up to one.

Our Black Student Union hosted Valley Catholic’s Black Student Union, and the students got a chance to build community and offer support for starting affinity clubs. We look forward to hearing more from Black Student Union as we kick off Black History Month in February!
