Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Scholarship Committee hosts the 20th annual scholarship and awards breakfast

January 20, 2020

For the last 20 years, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Scholarship Committee has convened its annual scholarship and award celebration breakfast in Cleveland. This year’s event will be held on Monday, January 20, 2020, at Windows on the River, 2000 Sycamore Street, Cleveland, Ohio 44113. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. and the program begins at 9 a.m. Tickets are $45. The event will be hosted by Josh and Maria Cribbs, of Channel 19’s Cribbs in the CLE.

This year’s theme is “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

“With the climate of our country today, we thought it was imperative to evoke discussions around what we can do as individuals and a collective to create a better community for all citizens, just as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. imagined and professed,” says Robbin Hudson, chair of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Scholarship Committee. “Therefore, we’re raising awareness of our Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), and honoring community leaders and organizations who are continuing in Dr. King’s legacy of building a beloved community.

At the scholarship and awards breakfast, thirteen (13) Cleveland Metropolitan School District students, one Morehouse College student and one student from Spelman College will receive scholarships.

“Morehouse College is a place like no other, the only institution in the world dedicated solely to educating the lives of African American men. I knew from the age of seven that this institution was one that could mold me into the leader, educator, and change maker that I was destined to be, and graduating debt-free put me two steps [closer] to achieving my mission of serving others,” says Tyler Wynne, a past scholarship recipient and 2019 Morehouse College graduate who will provide brief remarks during the event.

The Committee will be establishing a new scholarship, in partnership with the Northern Ohio Inter-Alumni Council-United Negro College Fund (N.O. IAC-UNCF), for students attending any HBCU.

Additionally, the “In The Footsteps of King Award©” will be presented to Quentin James and Stephanie Brown James, co-founders of The COLLECTIVE Political Action Committee. The two will also participate in a keynote fireside chat with Danielle Sydnor, President of the NAACP Cleveland Chapter.

The Tamir Rice Foundation will receive the “In The Footsteps of King Award©,” community organization honor.

Other special guests in attendance include U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, past honorary co-chair of the scholarship and award breakfast. Current honorary co-chairs are Aaron O’Brien, Esq., President of the Morehouse Alumni Association, Cleveland, and Anthony H. Brown, President of the Cleveland Council of Black Colleges Alumni Association.
