The Honorable Michael S. Steele, Lieutenant Governor of the State of Maryland, will be the keynote speaker at the annual Martin Luther King Convocation at Frostburg State University, to be held Wednesday, April 16, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Pealer Recital Hall. This event is free and open to the public.
The Convocation is an opportunity for the campus and surrounding communities to reflect on the issues of human rights and human dignity for which Dr. King stood, to reaffirm the importance of seeking equality and to consider the role that each individual can play in this effort.
Lt. Gov. Steele is the first African-American elected to statewide public office in Maryland. He works closely with Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, other elected officials and community organizations in several areas including economic development, minority business enterprise, education, and community service.
