In an effort to live up to the ideals of Dr. King, the IDeaL Education Foundation began hosting the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Luncheon. Since 1995, the Scholarship Luncheon has served as the key fund-raising vehicle in support of the Foundation’s youth mentoring efforts. The Foundation annually awards scholarships to deserving male high school and college students at the Scholarship Luncheon. Proceeds raised also fund other Foundation sponsored activities, including an Oratorical Contest for middle and high school students; Project Alpha – a day long workshop held in conjunction with the March of Dimes that educates teen males on the importance of responsible male sexual behaviors; the Leadership Development Institute for promising male junior high and high school students; Cub Scout Pack 350 and Boy Scout Troop 350 located in Dolton, IL; and a number of other initiatives.
For this year’s Scholarship Luncheon, the IDeaL Education Foundation will celebrate the work of our youth with the theme “Forward: A Celebration of Scholars”.
