Student talent highlighted during MLK program
CONYERS — Youth from across Rockdale County displayed their talents in honoring the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Monday afternoon at the Rockdale Career Academy (RCA).
Following the performances, Rockdale County Commission Chairman Oz Nesbitt Sr. presented special guest 4th District Congressman Hank Johnson with an Excellence in Public Service Award.
In accepting the award, Johnson stated that the nation is having a national emergency with 800,000 federal workers currently not being paid, and urged anyone who knows a federal worker to give them assistance as Dr. King would want.
“If you know someone, reach out to them,” said Johnson.
