MLK Day

We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in MLK Day of Service. With the help of some 400 students, faculty, and other community members, we served on 35 projects at 13 different locations throughout High Point. To see all that we were able to do in our community, take a look at each of the service projects via the Volunteer NOW button below and read the following articles:

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. This year, High Point University is partnering with our community to make MLK Day a day on rather than a day off.

In partnership with the Ministers Conference of High Point and Vicinity, we invite you to participate in any or all of the MLK Day opportunities to worship, fellowship, and serve on Monday, January 20, 2014:

  • 8 AM Annual Breakfast and Oratorical Competition, Oak Hollow Mall (in the old JC Penny’s): Scholarships are awarded each year to deserving high school seniors from the High Point community who demonstrate excellent moral, academic, and civic leadership in the true spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Tickets are $15, tables $120.
