CEE Junior Selected as Student Speaker for MLK Day Celebration

CEE Junior Selected as Student Speaker for MLK Day Celebration

CEE Junior Millard McElwee has been selected as one of two student speakers for CMU's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration. Millard was selected among many of the applicants for this unique and highly competitive honor.

“I wholeheartedly believe that we have a moral obligation to do our part to uplift others and ensure that Dr. King’s dream is actualized,” said Millard. His speech will reflect on the legacy of Dr. King and how that legacy has personally impacted not only Millard’s life but his educational career.

Millard will be speaking at 4:30PM before former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Dr. Jendayi Frazer's keynote address titled “Leading with Courage and Conviction.” This event is free and open to the CMU and Pittsburgh community on Monday, January 20th in Rangos Ballroom at the University Center.
