APS congratulates Coretta Scott King Middle School student Lauren Bailey for participating in the 45th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. commemorative service last month. Service organizers asked Lauren to speak after reading an essay the eighth-grader submitted. TV stations around the world captured images of Lauren as she delivered a special tribute honoring the legacy of Dr. King’s wife, Coretta Scott King, at the church King pastored, Ebenezer Baptist Church, in Atlanta. Lauren is a member of CSK’s Lady Eagles cheerleading team, a member of the Beta Club, robotics team and the CSK Middle School morning announcement team. After completing her education the honor student says she wants to enter the field of Marine Biology or Forensic Science. CSK High School student Jovanay Carter also spoke at the service.
