In the wake of COVID-19, the Martin Luther King Committee (Elbert County Planning Committee, Inc.) has decided to cancel all 2021 MLK Activities. After a lengthy discussion, it was a unanimous decision; we considered the risks to potential participants and the fact that no one is sure of what turn of events may take place referencing the Novel Coronavirus Disease.
With no vaccine readily available and risks of COVID exposure, cancellation is the safest route to take.
However, we will still accept scholarship applications from ECCHS Seniors for award presentations during their May Awards Ceremony. We present four (4) scholarships annually.
The MLK Committee sincerely appreciates all of the community support we have received, from city and county government and businesses, during the past twenty-seven (27) years. Thank you so much!
