This annual chapel service celebrates the life and work of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and features noteworthy clergy and scholars from across the country.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was deeply committed to serving others and helping foster a most just society. Every year, thousands of people across the United States come together to honor Dr. King through service projects, scholarship opportunities, and worship services. High Point University and the surrounding community are growing their partnership to make MLK Day a day on rather than a day off.
