A Day filled with Martin Luther King, Jr. Events in Chester Schools

Erica Parham, Assistant District Attorney from the District Attorneys’ Office and Twyla Simpkins, Yes We Can Achievement & Cultural Center and member of the Martin Luther King Commemorative Committee stands in front of a mural being painted by volunteers in the Gym at S.T.E.M High School in Chester, PA.

Chester Schools celebrated Martin Luther King Day with a day of service. Volunteers came out from the community and around the area to do some good works in the schools. Here is some of what volunteers did on MLK Day with pictures.
