Barber MotorSports is known as the space for spirited vehicles, but on Monday, January 16, the vehicles took a back seat to the energetic attendees at the MLK Breakfast at the Motor Park. The Tri-County (AL) Links supported the program and the community members during the celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. King.
        

After breakfast, the program began with a warm welcome by Leeds student Raven McCain. Following her words, Mayor Eric Patterson extended greetings to all attendees. Reverend Curtis White of Greater Mount Calvary Baptist Church prayed immediately before a heartfelt song was rendered by the singing group Covenant, the inspirational musical ensemble for the program. Dignitaries, community leaders and special guests were recognized, such as city council members, Leeds School administrators, and elected officials including Juandalynn Givan (and member of the Tri-County ( AL)  Chapter.
        

The Leeds Community Praise Dance Ministry honored guests with their choreographed movements immediately before the introduction of the speaker by Juandalynn Givan. The keynote speaker, Dr. George French, president of Miles College, spoke to the audience passionately about the importance of furthering the dream. “We have not realized the dream,” he added, “as long as we have schools that are not performing and the poor exist in our communities. We have not arrived.” He intimated that having “pockets” of success is not enough, “For as long as there is an unchecked disease in the valley, it will inevitably attack the mountain top, too.”
        

Charcey Glenn, representing the organizing committee, presented awards to community members, including Leeds High School girls’ basketball team, the president of Covenant Bank of Leeds, and the videographer. The Tri-County (AL) Links were recognized by Councilman Kenneth Washington, who thanked the women for participating in the community and working with the students at Leeds High School. Link President Samuetta Hill Drew talked briefly about the S.H.A.P.E. the Greenwave Program at Leeds High School and introduced each of the other members of the Tri-County (AL) Chapter.
        

After the benediction, the community members and guests greeted each other in the intended spirit promoted by Dr. King’s legacy.
