Reinhardt’s D.R.E.A.M.S. – a student organization acronym for Developing Rational Empowered African-Americans Motivating Society – was recognized and awarded for service to the community at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Breakfast in Canton last weekend.
The Cherokee County government and Allen Temple AME Church partnered to host the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Breakfast Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Northside Hospital Cherokee Conference Center.
“It felt amazing receiving an award of achievement,” said D.R.E.A.M.S. president Talyn Owens.
D.R.E.A.M.S. partnered with the RU Student Activities Council to host a day of service in honor of pastor and civil rights leader, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the national King holiday, Jan. 21. The day began with listening to King’s speech at the March on Washington, followed by a discussion on how his words affect people today. The group then worked to clean up around campus.
D.R.E.A.M.S. promotes the development of the minority community while providing the campus with cultural, social and academia enlightenment. D.R.E.A.M.S. is a pro-diversity group addressing issues of today’s society and provides students with a medium to express their opinions and concerns.
