Read a brief history of Martin Luther King Day of Service from the Michigan Community Service Commission:
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "Everybody can be great because everybody can serve." To honor his words of inspiration and encouragement, the Michigan Community Service Commission (MCSC) asks you to mark January 19, 2015 on your calendar for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.
The MLK Day of Service was initiated by Congress in 1994 and has been developed beyond a federal holiday honoring Dr. King into a national day of community service. In honor of this special day, thousands of service projects will be planned across the country grounded in Dr. King's teachings of nonviolence and social justice.
This year, Kettering participated in the College Town Holiday Food Drive to support the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in a very special way. Our goal was to support an important community need, build relationships with one another and generate holiday fun! 9 teams were formed, each made up of faculty, staff and student groups. We called our effort: Kettering Can-Do. While we are still in the competition with the other area colleges, we have some special Kettering winners.
Most Collected goes to the Kindness United team, made up of the Provost's Office, Co-Op and Thompson Hall. Great Job!
The Best "CANstruction" goes to the We Can-Do It! team. The team of Liberal Studies, Student Life and Alpha Signam Alpha used the food they collected to create a sculpture of the state of Michigan, including the Upper Peninsula!
Thanks to all those who contributed, the Can-Do leads and the great Can-Do committee. We really showed off our True Kettering Spirit!

The Innovation SuperQuest saw 7 teams competing in the cardboard boat challenge to win the $300 prize money. Each team had to compete in a direct elimination to gain as many points in the pool by bringing back the rings to their base while trying to stay away from the exploding mines.
The winners of the competition was the team of Ben Braskett, Chris and Jackie Letarte who won the $300. Second Place went to Jason Chapman, Lance Menard, Soren Walker and Mitch, who won $200. Third place went to Akshay Arugonda and Ashish Jadala and fourth place to Gowtham Subramanian and his team, both winning $100.
