Widener Law School on the Delaware campus honored Youth Court programs developed at Bayard Middle School and Chester High School during a program that celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The event was held in the Ruby R. Vale Moot Courtroom on Concord Pike, Wilmington, Delaware.
The Youth Court programs received the school’s Martin Luther King Service Award on Tuesday, January 20th. The event also kicked off Widener’s Semester of Service Program.
This is the fifth year the school has presented the award. It goes to a community member or organization that has brought life to King’s dream, and whose work has manifested those commitments to community service and to social justice that the school of law seeks to realize in its Semester of Service Project. Through the project, Widener Law students contribute their efforts to charitable labor and pro bono law-related service. The semester of service happens each spring and is now in its ninth year.
A hearty congratulation! Thank you Widener Law for including me for an award this year.
