DURANT – Southeastern Oklahoma State University celebrated its 16th annual Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, January 20.

Dr. Camille Wilson, Dean of Students, said 85 students participated in the Day of Service. The University collected food, which was then distributed to local food pantries.

Southeastern students worked at St. Catherine’s Food Bank, Families Feeding Families and Victory Life Food Bank.

Wilson said, “Today (Monday) was the anniversary of the civil rights amendment and we spent some time talking about that before the students went out to the various work places. We had some foreign students who were not familiar with our customs and they were very interested.’’
