Warren County Schools Martin Luther King event to go virtual

BOWLING GREEN Ky.- An annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day event is planned for Saturday with changes because of the pandemic.

The Warren County Public Schools holds a Martin Luther King Day event each year at Warren Central High School. To make sure the event still goes on, it will be virtual for 2021.

Starting at 4 p.m. Saturday, the event will be livestreamed. It will feature presentations, videos and keynote speaker Nikita Stewart from the New York Times.

Warren County Schools director of human resources Michele Tolbert said the fact that this event is still going on is a testament to the hard-working students and staff.

“With Covid, we were determined to not let it interfere with our ability to carry on this program. Thanks to our wonderful technology department, we’re able to put together a virtual event,” Tolbert said.

Keynote speaker Nikita Stewart has roots in Bowling Green. She graduated from Warren Central High School and Western Kentucky University.

This event comes from a partnership between the schools and First Bank, Independence bank and Service One Credit Union.
