SMC held the Voices of Dr. King event in memoriam of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On January 18, SMC hosted the “The Voices of Dr. King: A Reflection on the Words and Wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” in the Davis Mission Chapel. This is the third year that SMC has sponsored this program. Three members of the SMC community, including an SMC student, faculty member, and Spartanburg leader, served as readers for the event. This year, the readers were SMC Professor Kris Neely, Ted Phaeton of FOX Carolina News, and current SMC student Dalice Polk.

“In his sermons and speeches, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., intertwined biblical truth, history, literature and his own experiences,” says Kim Caton, director of student activities and leadership development at SMC. “In these texts, we find wisdom, inspiration and vision. This event provides us not only with the opportunity to reflect on Dr. King’s words but to also hear from campus and community leaders how these words are still impactful today and are part of that dream.”
