Dozens of people attended the 23rd annual MLK Prayer and Scholarship Breakfast.
Organizers say the event is a great time for community fellowship, which is a good way to start the new year.
Dorothy Roberts-Burns, who organized the breakfast, says, "It's one time during the year where you can bring people in the community of all walks of life to eat, pray, and visit, and I think this is a joyous time for our community."
During this year's breakfast, 16 scholarships totaling more than $20-thousand were awarded to Wichita Falls students.
