“It is important for the MSU community to celebrate MLK Day to recognize Dr. King's legacy and life of service helps to remind us to give back and serve others,” said Jamie Phipps, assistant chief diversity officer for student activities at MSU. “By serving others and advocating for the needs and rights of those who are disadvantaged, it helps us to work towards the fulfillment of Dr. King’s dream and help continue to inspire future generations to uphold those same values.”
