Olivet College to host Martin Luther King Jr. Day events
Jan 07, 2011

Olivet College students, faculty and staff will observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a series of events Monday, Jan. 17. All events are free and open to the public.

Activities will commence with a bell ringing ceremony at 11:30 a.m. in the College Square. A Presidential Luncheon featuring new Olivet College President Steven M. Corey, Ph.D., will be held at noon in the Kirk Center’s Oaks Dining Room. Following the luncheon, Tobias Q. Brown, CEO of TaiQuen Enterprises, will present a lecture at 1:30 p.m. in Mott Auditorium.

Brown has caught the eye of colleges and universities nationally by delivering a high energy message which informs students how to realize their potential and begin performing at higher academic levels.

Brown’s message is crafted from his own painful college and life experiences. After realizing his mediocre efforts in school were taking him nowhere fast, Brown decided to take charge of his life. This decision, coupled with the motivating principles he shares while speaking, catapulted his cumulative grade point average from a 1.2 to a 3.93 and placed him among the top percentile of students nationally and internationally. It’s with humor and excitement that Brown shares his academic rags-to-riches story with students around the world, and how they too can achieve unparalleled success.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day events are sponsored by the college’s African American Culture Center. For more information, call (269) 749-7750.
