Media drawn to 'Berg's MLK Jr. Day ON! weeklong events

In its second year, Heidelberg’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day ON! has garnered some regional and local media attention. This year, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee expanded Day ON! programming to a full week of primarily virtual events to make it more accessible to more members of the campus community.

On Monday, reporter Jon Monk of WTOL TV in Toledo interviewed Shaun Gunnell, coordinator of Multicultural Student Affairs, about the events for the week and the value of continuing to pursue Dr. King’s message of peace and justice for all.
