People packed the MPEC to honor Martin Luther King Jr. at the 30th annual prayer breakfast.

As they reflected on King’s legacy and the last three decades, officials presented scholarships before the prayer portion of the morning. Chaplain of the Dallas Cowboys Chaplin and Dallas Mavericks co-Chaplin Jonathan Evans shared about how everyone can all follow the path King laid out all those years ago.

“We are here to serve a purpose,” Evans said. “You are here to make an impact. There are more impacts that have been made. We get to walk in that trail that has been carved because of the great trailblazer Martin Luther King.”

Thirteen students were awarded more than $24,000 in scholarships.
