Lebanon High School teachers, students attend MLK march


Some Lebanon High School students and teachers helped celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. Monday in Springfield.

The group of 17 students and four English, art and social studies teachers took part in event to commemorate the work of the late civil rights leader.
Lebanon High School art teacher Elizabeth Barker said a group of friends had been attending the event since 2016.

“We were going with our own children and marching, we decided we would like to take Lebanon High School students because this is a really valuable program and it would be really good for our community to participate in it,” she said.

Barker said it is important to remember Dr. King’s life.

“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a message for everyone and was a transformative message of loving and changing systems so people could live together with equity and justice,” Barker said.
