Annual Alpha Phi Alpha MLK Breakfast Features Drum Major for Justice Award

The men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated held their 26th annual MLK Scholarship Breakfast on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at the Pinnacle in Maumee, Ohio.

Over 500 individuals – comprised of fraternity members of Alpha Phi Alpha, honorees and Toledo-area residents – gathered for the event.

The key moment of the breakfast, as always, is the presentation of Drum Major for Justice Award, an annual honor presented by the fraternity to a community member who leads a campaign for justice, as inspired by the well-known speech of Martin Luther King Jr. The 2018 honoree was Timothy Pettaway, the pastor of Walk the Word Ministry. Pastor Pettaway was inspired in May 2010 to begin the journey which would lead to the creation of Walk the Word Ministry holding its first service on July 24, 2011.

This year’s guest speaker was Jeff Johnson, University of Toledo graduate and radio and television personality.
