Dr. M. Lavelle Hendricks, a professor at Texas A and M Commerce is also the pastor of East Caney Missionary Baptist Church. He also is responsible for organizing the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Awards Ceremony 27 years ago. The event has grown in attendance and in stature, and this year will include dozens of recognitions of local persons who reflect the values of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during his lifetime. During a Good Morning Show interview on KSST and Channel 18 TV, Hendricks brought along two guests who also uphold the high standards of humanity of Dr. King. Dr. Ray Keck, University President, and Noah Nelson, Vice President of Media Relations will have speaking parts during Monday’s public event. They will be joined by elected officials, public servants, church and school leaders, members of the African-American Leadership Conference and youngsters who are pursuing paths to education and meaningful careers. An abundance of uplifting music will be presented by local choirs and soloists. An offering will be taken and attendees are asked to make a $10 or generous donation to the AALC headquartered at Texas A and M University in Commerce. The event will begin on Monday January 15, 2018 at 7 pm at Morning Chapel Missionary Baptist Church at 208 Fuller Street in Sulphur Springs, Texas.
