Heitzler to keynote MLK event

  • Monday, January 14, 2013

The Goose Creek Clergy Association and the Charleston YWCA are sponsoring the second annual Goose Creek community celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. 
The program will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday (Jan. 13) at Goose Creek United Methodist Church. 
Goose Creek Mayor Michael Heitzler will be the keynote speaker.
During his lifetime, Dr. King sought to forge the common ground on which people from all walks of life could join together as equals to address important community issues.
The second annual Andrea Glover Matthews Award will be presented to Minister Kenny Johnson in honor of his many contributions to the community and work with children. The community service award was named in memory of the late Mrs. Andrea Glover Matthews, a long time educator and the first president of the Goose Creek NAACP. 
Glover Matthews made major contributions to the Goose Creek community and she and her service will always be remembered by this award in her name.
Berkeley County School Superintendent Dr. Rodney Thompson will serve as master of ceremony for the program. U.S. Sen. Tim Scott will join local clergy and civic leaders on the program.
