On Monday, Jan. 15, Baylor School students and faculty observed the 2018 Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday by celebrating the school’s 24th annual “day on” with service work throughout the Chattanooga area and educational workshops on campus.
Highlights of the day included:
- Nearly 200 Baylor juniors, seniors, teachers, coaches, and advisors volunteered at Battery Heights, Carver Recreation Center, the Chattanooga Zoo, the Community Kitchen, Crabtree Farms, Girls Leadership Academy, Glass Street Trailthe Humane Society, Memorial Hospital, the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy, the Pet Placement Center, Pleasant Gardens Cemetery, Red Bank Life Care Nursing Home, and the YMCA’s YCAP program.
