Dr. MLK Student Leadership Honorees

Dr. MLK Student Leadership Awardee group

The School District of University City initiated the first Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Student Leadership Awards in 2015. The awards, presented during the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration, recognized those students who best embodied the spirit, leadership and ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Students are selected by their building leadership for his important honor. Our Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. observance was canceled this year due to the ice storm, however we wanted to celebrate our students and encourage them to continue to be leaders both at school and in our community.

The 2017 individual awardees (by school) are:

Flynn Park Elementary: Alita Kiron, Zacariah Robinson and Katherine Zustiak.

Jackon Park Elementary: Bryan Ammonds, Carl David Summers Jr, and Xavier Thomas
