King’s legacy lives on through area students




2018 MLK Essay Winners

Essay contest asked students to reflect on their visions for justice

Five decades after Martin Luther King Jr.’s work toward greater civil rights and racial equality was cut short in 1968, Fostoria students gathered in council city chambers to reflect on his legacy.

The city of Fostoria partnered with the Fostoria Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to host the Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration Monday afternoon. The annual event recognized students from Fostoria City schools and St. Wendelin Catholic schools for their own visions and plans to continue King’s pursuit of justice.

Students in grades 1-6 were asked to write an essay on how they can promote justice in their community and beyond to be considered in the Tiffin-Seneca Martin Luther King Jr. Day Committee’s 30th annual essay contest.

This year’s winners included Maciel Salcido, a second-grader, and Josh Dibble, a fourth grader, both at St. Wendelin; Emily Catherine Sidney and Brooklyn Holman, both fifth-graders, and Makalynn McCumber, a sixth-grader, all of Fostoria Intermediate Elementary.

Each student was presented a certificate and gift bag as a prize after they practiced reading their essay in front of friends and family. [Article courtesy of Review Times]
