Reader letter: Some thoughts on the MLK scholarship program


Although the celebration will not happen on my great day, these two great men will always have a special place in my heart. To them, much respect. If you feel like I feel, you will say a special prayer for Janice Leavell and the committee. 

Thank you, committee, for a wonderful three-day celebration. It was a great turnout Jeffersonville, but we can do better. 

And by the way, you can give to the scholarship program all year. Mail donations to Jeffersonville High School, addressed to the MLK Scholarship Committee. I may not be correct to ask for that. I’m not part of the group. I’m just proud to live in Jeffersonville.
