Martin Luther King, Jr. Program

For over two decades, the University has designated the Tuesday program following the MLK holiday as a celebration of the Civil Rights leader. This year’s tribute also honors King’s legacy by introducing iBelong, a new mentoring initiative for minority males offered by the University’s Student Success Division. Guest speaker Juan Cherry is an alumnus and one of the mentors for the program.

Cherry’s message, “Is There Not A Cause?” reflects on King’s devotion to his dream for equality. “Dr. King was thrust into the forefront as a leader of the Montgomery bus boycott of 1955 at the age of 26,” Cherry explained. “He found his cause. It was his life’s work. We must each find our cause.”

Cherry received his master’s in school counseling from Gardner-Webb and is a counselor at Shelby (N.C.) High School. He also serves as pastor of New Creation Christian Center, and he is the founder of Wired for Success Communications and Consulting.
