Mines students honor MLK through "Day of Service"

Posted:

As the nation remembers Martin Luther King Jr., KOTA Territory college students are joining hundreds of people nationwide in honoring his spirit.

Several student organizations at the School of Mines participated in the nationwide " Day of Service" in honor of the late civil rights leader.

Monday, they spent part of the afternoon spread out across Rapid City at grocery stores gathering food and monetary donations to benefit "Feeding South Dakota".

Mines student Christian Jones says that he chose to volunteer to help keep king's legacy alive and well,"As much as he gave to this country and as much as he did for the people, I think this is just a really good way of giving back and showing how we can give back, part of the way he did for all the people".

For Chris Romanjenko it's about paying back for the help he has received, "I've had a lot of help from people and it's just really nice to return what's been given to me".

This is the 4th year Tech students have participated in the "Day of Service".
