St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley will host its annual celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at 3 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 19, in the Terry M. Fischer Theater on campus, 3400 Pershall Road.

The theme is “50 Years: Working Together to Celebrate the Legacy.”

Terrence Freeman will serve as keynote speaker. Freeman is a professor in engineering science and has been with the college since 1982. He was an adviser to the president for seven years on multicultural affairs, coordinated Project Chart to encourage underrepresented students to pursue careers in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, and is an adviser for the National Society of Black Engineers. He helped develop the minority engineering transfer program and has hosted nine students from South and Central America.

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education recently named Freeman the 2013 Missouri Professor of the Year.

The event will feature the winners of the annual North County Churches Uniting for Racial Harmony and Justice (NCCU) Oratorical Contest, readings from STLCC students, musical performances from the Third Presbyterian Church Choir and an interpretative dance piece by Shawntelle Fisher.

The event is sponsored by the college and NCCU. Admission is free and seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Special accommodations are available for persons with disabilities by calling 314-513-4551.
