Some members of Louisiana Delta Community College and the University of Louisiana at Monroe will be taking the day on, not off, on January 15, 2018. In 1994, Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, designating the Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort.

 

Local students read their favorite holiday stories as part of the 90.3 KEDM Give the Joy of Learning reading campaign.  1,700 books were distributed to area 1st and 2nd graders in 13 local schools.

Life is a sum total of all our experiences, our growth and development, our hopes and our disappointments. 

It's a movement from conception to death. We move from one transitory stage of development to the next transitory stage.

As we move through in life, we learn to deal with our life experiences in our own functional or dysfunctional way.

Student artists are hard at work creating giant wooden Christmas cards to be displayed downtown in Monroe.

The art program at the University of Louisiana at Monroe has joined together with Monroe Renaissance and local area schools to participate in a competition creating these over-sized cards to win cash prizes for art supplies for local schools.

Brooke Foy, assistant professor of art at ULM, says that projects like these are a great way to bring local artists together.

"All the schools do their best, they work really hard on these," she says.
