MLK DAY: Milwaukee Public Schools service project at Carson Academy

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed in serving one's community. That is what Milwaukee Public Schools' MLK Day of Service is all about. 

MPS worked with City Year for the 13th year in a row – choosing Carson Academy of Science for its 2023 service project. 

300 volunteers gathered to add some color to the school with murals, inspirational quotes, and banners lining the school's walls.
