Lakewood Heroes: Day 5 Anthony Veliz

Jan. 14, 2023

Clover Park School District Director Anthony Veliz shares how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message has influenced his life.

He shares his passion for helping youth and ensuring the next generation has opportunities to succeed.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service holiday is Monday, Jan. 16, 2023. As we celebrate this year, we honor the theme: Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. 

Each day from now until Jan. 16 we will highlight the work and volunteerism of people who have spent their time giving back to Lakewood. The videos will air on the city’s YouTube channel, the city website under “News & Updates” and on the MLK Day event page. They’ll also be shared on the city’s social media channels.

Feeling inspired? We have a list of local organizations that need volunteers or donations to help with their respective causes and missions to give back to our community on our MLK Day event page.
