Students honor MLK by giving back to community

Jan 23, 2019

For Martin Luther King Jr. Day, hundreds of Jaguars spent their day off from classes volunteering at 13 different sites near downtown Indianapolis in honor of the late civil rights leader’s legacy, including the Ronald McDonald House, Holy Family Shelter and the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site.

Several student groups, including the cross-country and tennis teams, participated in the annual day of service.
