Marine Base salutes MLK

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany is holding a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. observance at the Base Chapel, Monday morning.

The keynote speaker for the program is Mrs. Karen B. Baynes-Dunning, former Juvenile Court Judge and wife of Interim President, Arthur Dunning, of Albany State University.

Baynes-Dunning earned her B.A. in Politics from Wake Forest University and her Juris Doctorate from the Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley. 

She has worked extensively and throughout her career toward improving child and family serving systems within the legal arena and has served as and been appointed to several committees and a member of several commissions in regard to her work with those services.

MCLB puts on a salute to MLK each year, and has continued that tradition for decades.
