Martin Luther King, Jr. Day message from President Roberts

Dear Colleague,

This weekend we had an opportunity to reflect on this national day of observance, the life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have been 90 years old on his birthday, January 15. I wonder what guidance he would give us as we continue to confront intolerance and discrimination in our country and in our world.

As I think about Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy, I’m reminded of his quote, which begins our powerful Community Standard statement. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly…”

As we continue our conversations together this quarter and going forward, I’m heartened to know that at the center of all we do is care and compassion to do what is “right” for our students, community, and each other.

Gratefully,
Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
President
