Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration and Community Service Awards
The Johns Hopkins University and The Johns Hopkins Hospital/Health System proudly present the Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration and Community Service Awards.
Johns Hopkins’ annual commemoration celebrates the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. by honoring community service by members of JHU and JHH/JHHS who demonstrate the same spirit of volunteerism and citizenship that characterized the life of Dr. King.
