Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Annual Birthday Observance
Since 1977, Tri-C has been honoring the life, legacy and accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with an annual Birthday Observance, where we welcome the community to an afternoon of reflection, scholastic celebration and music.
We invite you to enjoy photos from the January 2017 event below.
Channel 5 News Anchor Leon Bibb and Tri-C Metropolitan Campus President Michael Schoop, Ph.D., welcomed a crowd of 2,000+ to Playhouse Square's State Theatre for the January 2017 observance. Tri-C President Alex Johnson, Ph.D., introduced the 2017 MLK Humanitarian Scholarship Recipients. Students Tyler Wynne and Madison Reid made stirring Oratorial Presentations. The Cleveland Philharmonic Orchestra filled the theatre with the sounds of Duke Ellington, followed by a beautiful performance by Pastor Marvin L. Winans.
Since 1991, Tri-C's Foundation has helped Tri-C students "put wings on their dreams" by helping fund students through the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian Scholarship.
