Southern Adventist University students, employees, and alumni will continue the university’s tradition of honoring Martin Luther King Jr. through service to the community on Monday, Jan. 20.

One of the new partnerships this year is with Erlanger Health System. Throughout the day, a lineup of volunteer student musical groups will perform at Erlanger Medical Mall, bringing cheer to patients, employees, and visitors.
