March for Martin a Success

Lenape's Annual March for Martin Held at Lenape on January 12, 2017.
African-American Club Officers Naiyana Fountain, Sienna Holmes, and Jaelyn Phillips  
Respectfully silent, students and staff members honored Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with our annual March for Martin.
The event has been going strong for nearly 14 years after 2003 Lenape graduate Troy Riley fulfilled his very own dream to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
This year’s march was led by Lenape’s African American Club and JROTC.  In addition to the great leadership on the front lines, multicultural clubs from our district’s sister schools attended to add to the diversity on display in our district.  Many of Lenape’s athletic teams and extracurricular clubs marched while Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I Have A Dream” speech resonated loudly through the halls of Lenape High School.
Thanks to our capable LTV student production crew, students and staff throughout the school sat solemnly watching original footage of the historic moment.   
A round robin discussion about the life and legacy of  Dr. Martin Luther King was held in the North Cafeteria after the March for Martin.  Mr. Allan Tittermary, advisor of the African American Club, moderated the discussion.
