UT will host its annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Benefit Dinner Monday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Auditorium on Main Campus.

The event, themed “A Progression of Change,” will feature Ohio Sen. Ray Miller as the keynote speaker. He will focus on diversity, the overall significance of King’s dream and how it pertains to the recent inauguration of President Barack Obama, and how education resonates as a support system to success.

Entertainment will include musical performances by Lift Your Hands Ministries, Sign-Mime Choir, Amy Hancock and David Cunningham. A silent auction will be conducted from 6 to 8 p.m.

Tickets are $60 per person and $30 per student. Tables of eight may be purchased for $480. Another option called “table plus” allows sponsors to purchase tables that include two tickets for current UT students at a cost of $540.
