Saginaw Valley State University will welcome Valerie Jarrett, a former senior advisor to President Barack Obama, to deliver the keynote address during the 10th annual Great Lakes Bay Regional Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at SVSU.
In addition to Jarrett’s keynote address, the program will include the presentation of regional scholarship awards by the Bay Area, Midland Area and Saginaw community foundations to high school seniors who have embodied Martin Luther King’s ideals. Officials will also announce the winners of the Drum Major award, recognizing people whose community involvement in the Great Lakes Bay Region serves to advance King’s vision.
