King Essay Contests Honored at School Board Meeting

The Grand Rapids Public School Board took a moment last evening to recognize the winners and honorable mention recipients in our 14th annual Martin Luther King, Jr., essay contest.  Diversity Partner Rodney Martin presented each of the winners and honorable mention recipients with a gift card to Schuler Books and Music and a certificate of participation. A personalized certificate of participation will be given to each of the more than 330 students who participated in this year’s contest.
