CUYAHOGA FALLS — Students from Emmanuel Christian Academy (ECA) commemorated Martin Luther King Jr. Day by performing a series of skits and choral, dance and speech recitation performances at Summa Western Reserve Hospital.

The Jan. 20 lunchtime event began with ECA Principal Rena Suber sharing some of King’s history and accomplishments, followed by performances from the ECA students, which included an a cappella vocal performance, poetry and speech recitations and a dance group. The event ended with a solo trumpet performance and prayer from Dan Page, pastor at Cornerstone Community Church in Stow.

“The moving performances we saw today are a clear sign of talented, passionate, hard-working students,” said Suber. “They reminded us of the world-changing work of Dr. King, who would have no doubt been proud of the ECA students celebrating his legacy.”
