25th annual Unity Breakfast and Day of Service held at MSU

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – Education, service and leadership highlight the 25th annual Unity Breakfast and Day of Service at Mississippi State.

Folks packed into The Mill at MSU Monday morning.

Marcus Thompson was the keynote speaker.

He’s the Deputy Commissioner and Chief Administrative Officer for the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning.

Thompson also provides equity and diversity strategies for all of the state’s universities.

He believes giving back makes our communities better.

We should come together and work through divisiveness and be the people that Dr. King dreamed and live about us being. We also need to appreciate the character and service in our world today and how service makes us all great, said Thompson.

MSU’s Maroon Volunteer Center encouraged everyone at the event to give their services back to the community at ten various locations in Oktibbeha County.
