Bernardsville Library was honored as a "drum major for justice" by Raritan Valley Community College at its annual MLK Community Partner Breakfast on Friday, January 25, 2013. Madelyn English, Bernardsville Library's Adult Program Manager, represented the library at this occasion and was recognized for providing "service learning opportunities for the students of RVCC."
A "drum major for justice" distinction refers to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assertion that the greatest leaders serve others, putting justice above personal gain. In the year before he was assassinated, Dr. King stated his hope that he would be remembered as a drum major for justice. Raritan Valley Community College celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. annually with this recognition breakfast for its community partners. Thank you, RVCC!
