NAACP Santa Fe Branch

New Mexico Martin Luther King. Jr. State Commission

Santa Fe Schools:  Public, Charter or Indian 

Many high school students use what they have learned from Dr. King’s teachings and express their love for and commitment to humanity by providing community service in Santa Fe.  The Santa Fe Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the New Mexico Martin Luther King. Jr. State Commission, and Santa Fe Public Schools are seeking nominations of high school students who are performing exemplary community service.  We urge everyone to nominate any 11th or 12th grade student who is actively volunteering and performing community service, for the 2018 Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Service Award.  Winners will receive a monetary award, a certificate, a commemorative gift, one year membership in the Santa Fe Branch NAACP, and information about Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Community members, counselors, principals, teachers, and all who work with youth in any capacity are encouraged to nominate students from all ability, cultural, ethnic, gender, and orientation backgrounds.

The theme for this year’s commemoration is KING: HIS VOICE, HIS TEACHINGS, HIS LOVE FOR HUMANITY”.  Youth who are leaders today will continue leading in our future. The Santa Fe Branch seeks to acknowledge those young leaders for their contributions uplifting our community. These youth exemplify what it takes for global citizenry, as they express their own love for humanity.  Student nominees must:

  • Be enrolled in a Santa Fe public high school, charter school, or Santa Fe Indian School
  • Be in grades 11-12
  • Hold at least a 2.5 GPA
  • Be actively providing community service

A Nomination Form is (1) attached with this announcement; (2) available through the Santa Fe Public Schools, Charter Schools, and Santa Fe Indian School; and (3) on the NAACP Santa Fe Branch web site: http://naacpsfnm.blogspot.com

The winners will be honored and receive their awards at the annual commemoration of Dr. King’s birthday in the Rotunda of the New Mexico State Capitol in Santa Fe, on Monday, January 15, 2018, at 12 Noon. Nominees, parents, teachers, counselors, principals, all family members, and friends are encouraged to attend the event in support of the nominees, our future leaders.
