This month, the FSCJ community is paying tribute to the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his impact on changing social norms in our community through his vision and activism.
MLK Jr. Day of Service
On Monday, January 15, FSCJ Volunteer Services joined with United Way in a Day of Service to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Students and staff collectively volunteered at Susie Tolbert Elementary School and Northwestern Middle School where they cleaned, painted, landscaped and built picnic tables to improve the space. The BlueWave Women’s Basketball team also volunteered their time throughout the community.
