Three Benedictine University students were awarded a Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Scholarship during the 12th Annual King Breakfast celebrated January 15 in the Krasa Student Center on the campus of Benedictine University. The breakfast is one of the largest events of its kind in the country celebrating King’s legacy and diversity in general. A portion of the proceeds from the event go to fund student scholarships. The King scholarships are awarded based on a number of criteria including scholarship and community service.
