On Jan. 25, community members and staff gathered to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. AAMC welcomed Josh Cohen, mayor of Annapolis, as keynote speaker.

One of the special highlights was hearing from “Live the Dream” essay contest winner Mikayla Dogget, 2nd grader at Kennilworth Elementary and daughter of Tawana Dogget, social worker, Care Management:

“My dream is for people to treat others fairly and nicely. We should protect the Earth and stay healthy and strong. I wish the children and teachers in Connecticut were still alive. They are beautiful angels in the sky. I am happy that President Obama is making the world a better place. When I grow up, I want to be a teacher and help kids learn to make good choices. This is my dream.”

Crystal Randall

Hearing Crystal Randall, ORA, sing was a special treat.

Another highlight was hearing Crystal Randall, operating room assistant, sing Precious Lord, which was also sung at Dr. Martin Luther King’s funeral.

A big thank you to the members of the Cultural Diversity Initiative, who organized and presented this event.
