The City of Spingdale celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The city held an annual parade Monday in King’s honor. One third grade teacher from Ozark Montessori Academy spoke about why it was important that her class attended the parade and how they were impacted.
“We have been doing Civil Rights research because, in honor of MLK day, we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to bring them and show them what it looks like when the community gets together to celebrate something so important,” said Paige Hendricks, Ozark Montessori Academy teacher.
Hendrix said that her third grade class loved the parade, asked many questions about the history behind this day and said that it was worth the learning experience even with the cold weather.
