FREDERICK, Md. - Frederick County public school students and staff invite the public to join in celebrating the life and legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on Tuesday, Jan. 15, at 7 p.m. in the Gov. Thomas Johnson High School auditorium.

The free 90-minute presentation, "From Vision to Action," will feature music performances, award-winning student artwork and written expressions that focus on King's life and the principles he promoted, said Ted Luck, FCPS supervisor of education.

During the ceremony, one outstanding student from each of the county's public schools will receive the "King" award, presented to students who have demonstrated leadership qualities characteristic of the slain civil-rights leader and exemplified the Character Counts! Pillars.
