Guest Speaker
Coach Ken Carter
 

The Scottsdale MLK Dinner was initiated by CCD's founding member, Sandra Rembrandt. In the early 1990's, members from across the valley traveled to Phoenix to celebrate Dr. King's birthday. Ms. Rembrandt had a passion for Dr. King's legacy and felt citizens from the Scottsdale community would take pride in hosting a celebration in its own community. Today, Scottsdale's celebration serves as a signature celebration for the entire valley that includes national renowned speakers representing a myriad of diversity perspectives honoring the history and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
