MLK DAY

Celebrating 30 Years


For 30 years, Andover has celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by taking the ‘day on’. Brian Gittens ’89 staged a protest on the steps of Sam Phil, playing MLK’s speeches on his boombox, to implore our community to mark the day in meaningful programming. Our MLK day program is now a hallmark celebration at Andover that involves our entire campus community (and on occasion our alumni)!
