ALLENTOWN, PA (January 13, 2000) -- Muhlenberg College will celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with a remembrance service to be held on Thursday, January 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Egner Memorial Chapel.

The service is free and open to the public and will feature a keynote address by Rev. Darrell L. Armstrong, assistant pastor at the historic Shiloh Baptist Church in Trenton, NJ. Armstrong's address is titled "I Have A Dream…How Far Have We Come?"

Jordan is a graduate of Stanford University where he received his bachelor's degree in public policy. He also holds a master's of divinity with a concentration in church-state relations from Princeton Theological Seminary.

In addition to his pastoral duties, Armstrong is the founder and executive director of the National Association of Foster Children, Inc.
