Dr. David King

The Dr. David King Memorial Scholarship has been established in honor of Dr. King’s legacy of community service, hard work, integrity, valuing people, reducing suffering, and helping and equipping people along their life’s journey, always with the end in view of pointing others to know the Savior Jesus Christ.
