Lewisburg celebrates MLK day

Posted: Updated:

Lewisburg was home to the states biggest MLK day celebration on Monday. The day started with a parade, beginning at the court house and ending at the United Methodist church. The march through downtown was followed with a free lunch for the community and a program commemorating the memory of Dr. King through music and speakers.

Students also made the day special by choosing to walk in the march rather than celebrate by staying at home. Greenbrier Episcopal students were glad they attended and said they learned a lot about Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as the importance of equality.
