MLK Ceremonial March at Topeka High School
Temperatures in the teens shortened today’s ceremonial march of the Governor’s Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. The Topeka High School ROTC color guard and drum line lead Governor Sam Brownback and marchers from a parking lot west of the school to the school’s auditorium. With students watching, the governor welcomed those attending the event. The keynote address was given by Dr. Derrick Darby, who teaches in the college of liberal arts and sciences and the school of law at the University of Kansas.
