In preparation for Martin Luther King Day, Lakehill Preparatory School invited Reverend Josef Rasheed to speak on the topic of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and equality.
Before Lakehill students were treated to Reverend Rasheed's presentation, they met as tribes to discuss the famous "I Have A Dream Speech." Each tribe member was able to share a personal dream for our society's future and record it on a special "Joining Hands" wreath.
When asked about the message of the assembly, Lara Gajkowski, Assistant Headmaster, said, "It was all about teaching us that the ordinary person can change the world through determination, tenacity, and charisma, all while doing so in a peaceful manner."
Gajkowski explained, "Reverend Rasheed was the perfect choice for our assembly. He has a passion for the topic of Martin Luther King, Jr. and has been involved in promoting equal rights for everyone all his life."
