Lola Hoffman (second from right) receives prizes from several local businesses as the winner of the fifth-grade Martin Luther King, Jr. essay contest. Hoffman read her winning essay during the second annual “Coffee with the King” event Jan. 16. Grand County High School graduate Madison Johnson (left), who lobbied the school district in 2015 to honor King’s life and work by recognizing the holiday, created the event. Speaking about the essay contest, Johnson said she wanted to see more active civic engagement for younger people. “We strived for real community involvement this year, which led to our reaching out to local 5th graders to be given a chance to feel relevant in their community on MLK day.” Hoffman said she wanted to write an essay about King, noting that his “I have a dream” speech really affected her. “This world wouldn’t be exactly how it is right now unless we had him say a speech and stand up for everybody ... His history really strikes me to do an essay about it.” Johnson plans to host “Coffee with the King” every year as a way for the community to reflect and engage with King’s life and work. “I really wish to incur change by being an example for the way we relate to each other, not only in agreement for our likeness but to understand each other in our differences,” Johnson said. “Knowing that difference is OK and that’s what truly makes this life interesting.” 																									Photo by Molly Marcello
