Each year, representatives from Wake Forest and Winston-Salem State Universities form a joint Martin Luther King Jr. programming committee and present the “Building the Dream” award.

The award is traditionally presented to a student and a professor or administrator from both Wake Forest and Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) who exemplify King’s qualities and promote diversity within the community.

Last year, one student and three campus leaders were recognized at Wake Forest. Read “Voices for Justice” to learn about the 2014 “Building the Dream” award-winners.

Award-winners will be announced at the ceremonial banquet in January at Wake Forest University.
