MVSCD SCHOOLS CLOSED MONDAY, JAN. 21, FOR MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY

Posted January 18 at 4:07pm

Minisink Valley schools will be closed on Monday, Jan. 21, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

On Nov. 2, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill in the White House Rose Garden designating a federal holiday honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to be observed on the third Monday of January. A leader of the 1950s-1960s civil rights movement, Rev. Dr. King advocated for nonviolent civil disobedience to racial segregation, and was instrumental in the movement's most momentous achievements (Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965). He was also recognized internationally with the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize.
