Luther King, Jr. Citizenship Award
Upstate of South Carolina
Each year, the Brothers of Gamma Gamma Lambda Chapter
present this award to an individual from the Greenville
Community who has worked timelessly to provide outstanding
leadership and service to others.
The recipient of the
award demonstrates the same outstanding leadership
and community service as our late Brother Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr.
There have been 33 winners of the award which started as an award program in 1981 with the already established MLK Commemorative Banquet (now known as the MLK Scholarship Gala). We are proud to have the collective service of our winners over the years as local examples of Dr. King's Legacy. The service they have given our community and its causes is beyond measure.
Peggy Baxter will receive the
2017 MLK Citizenship
Award at the
MLK Scholarship Gala on January 29th
