Omega U students served as Ushers and provided community support and service while attending the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Oratorical Contest sponsored by the Distinguished Women of Delta Sigma Theta of Prince William County Virginia on January 20, 2020. The contest encourages the development of public speaking skills of youth in grades 6 through 12 via a structured competition. The day is dedicated in honoring and celebrating the sustainment of Martin Luther King’s spirit of optimism, public service, racial harmony, and human rights through the voices of youth. The Martin Luther King Community Choir was formed in 1991 to provide music for the program. The choir also consists of student in grades K-12 and is reflective of the many cultures in our community. Omega U had over 75+ students that participated in the MLK Oratorical contest serving as ushers, audience participants, and cheerleaders for their fellow PWCPS classmates.
“When we look at modern man, we have to face the fact…that modern man suffers from a kind of poverty of the spirit, which stands in glaring contrast to his scientific and technological abundance; We’ve learned to fly the air like birds, we’ve learned to swim the seas like fish, and yet we haven’t learned to walk the Earth as brothers and sisters…”
Martin Luther King Jr.
