Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands
in moments of comfort and convenience,
but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today we remember an iconic leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on his birthday, January 15. He was a leader whose life embodied Nyack College/AllianceTheological Seminary’s core values of being academically excellent, globally engaged, intentionally diverse, personally transforming, and socially relevant.
While the nation—and indeed thousands around the globe—joins the celebration of the man and his life's work on Monday, January 18, Nyack College will be represented in community events honoring Dr. King.
Dr. Michael G. Scales, Nyack/ATS president has been invited by the Nyack Branch NAACP to offer the invocation at a 2:00 p.m. service at Pilgrim Baptist Church located at 80 N Franklin Street in downtown Nyack. Also participating in that service will be Mr. Earl Miller, Nyack’s executive director of community relations.
