There is no doubt that Dr. King’s teachings left an impression on millions. Just as Dr. King worked to make a difference in our country, our foundation strives to reward those students and teachers who understand what it means to make a difference in Suffolk. Over the past 10 years we have awarded nearly $200,000 in grants, scholarships and tuition assistance.

We wish the committee continued success in the coming years and are honored to have been a small part of an outstanding ceremony.


Tim Copeland
