Midwest City honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Jan. 27 with its 27th annual Prayer Breakfast at the Reed Conference Center. Retired Col. Stephanie Wilson was the keynote speaker and received the Clara Luper Community Service Award.

Mid-Del Schools had several students, board members and former employees participate in the event. The Midwest City High School Jazz Band performed throughout the event. All three Mid-Del high school Color Guards combined to present the colors. Taniyah Willsun, from Midwest City High School, sang the Black National Anthem.
