MLK Dinner Keynote Announced

    December 18, 2019

    Once again, the Office of Equity and Diversity is pleased to partner with the Greater Scranton Martin Luther King Commission to host the annual community celebration and awards dinner on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020, in the McIlhenny Ballroom beginning at 2:30 p.m. Please contact OED to make your reservation.

    The GSMLKC theme for 2020 is ALL Humanity, taken from Dr. King's quote : “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” Dr. King's desire and mission to enlighten individuals about the rewards of selflessness and service to the community was at the core of his message and social justice work.

    We are pleased to announce Secretary Brandon Flood of the PA Board of Pardons as the keynote speaker for the annual dinner. Mr. Flood will share his inspirational story of transition from felon to public service. More information on Secretary Flood may be found here and here.

    Please contact Jennifer Pennington at or 570-941-6645 for event information and reservations.
