Please Join us for the MLK Celebration Event

Everyday our community and region is working to achieve the vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  For the past 20 years, the MLK Committee in Sacramento has created an event that pays tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. King.  We invite you to commemorate, celebrate and be educated at the 20th anniversary event as we remember the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the tens of thousands of people who have fought and continue to fight for equality across the country. Join more than 700 people from all over the region as we pay homage to a man who has inspired generations of people.

Dr. Hazel Mahone, CEO of Vision 2000 and Veteran Educator

Dr. Hazel Mahone, a veteran educator, has taught at all levels of education, kindergarten – through the university. She has 2 masters degrees in education and psychology and a doctorate in educational leadership. She has worked as a principal, an assistant superintendent and served for six years as a superintendent. This position earned her the distinction of becoming the first female superintendent in Sacramento county.

Just prior to that honor, she became the deputy executive director of the California school boards association, where she remained for 6 years and assisted over 25 districts in their search for a new superintendent. At CSBA she created the prestigious public education hall of fame to honor and induct outstanding public high school graduates. In addition, she established the golden bell awards, which are presented annually to schools throughout California with exemplary educational programs.  Read More
