Each year, the Brothers of Gamma Gamma Lambda Chapter present this award to an individual from the Greenville Community who has worked timelessly to provide outstanding leadership and service to others.
The recipient of the award demonstrates the same outstanding leadership and community service as our late Brother Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The award is given at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Gala held in January if each year.
There have been more than 30 winners of the award which started as an award program in 1981 with the already established MLK Commemorative Banquet (now known as the MLK Scholarship Gala). We are proud to have the collective service of our winners over the years as local examples of Dr. King's Legacy. The service they have given our community and its causes is beyond measure.
