Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Through Service
In observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 20, University School of Milwaukee did not hold classes. Instead, USM students, faculty, staff, and their families were invited to participate in a special on-campus service project to honor the civil rights leader and the 25th anniversary of the MLK Day of Service.
In a new format this year, parents and students of all ages met in the Jack Olson '67 Commons to make sandwiches to benefit the Guest House of Milwaukee. Sandwich ingredients were donated by FLIK Independent School Dining, and guests were invited to bring additional sandwich-making items if they wished.
In addition to enjoying coffee and a light breakfast, attendees heard brief speeches from Andrew Cotton '21, Kushal Daruwala '22, CJ Goldberg '22, Caroline Harkless '21, and Rosa Rivera '22, as well as Melissa Feldmeyer from the United Way.
Attendees made, bagged, and labeled approximately 700 sandwiches, which will help to feed those in need. Many thanks to all who participated!
