Call To Understanding In Building Community

The keynote speaker at Bellarmine High School's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Assembly was Rev. Dr. Leslie Braxton, Pastor of New Beginnings Christian Fellowship Church.

He challenged each student to develop his/her emotional, intellectual, and spiritual gifts so that he/she could focus with integrity, sensitivity, courage, and compassion on helping other people to enjoy the freedom, security, and dignity they deserve. I found his presentation timely and moving.

What an exciting year for MLK speakers! What an exciting time period.

Gig Harbor High School featured a Samoan dance team from Clover Park High School where my son teaches. It was exciting to share the important occasion with students so diverse from GHHS and yet to feel the electricity in the air as we head toward these important days.
