As celebrations continue in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., family members of the civil rights activist say this is year is particularly significant. Dr. Alveda King is Reverend King's niece, and the founder Of King for Life. She told WYSO that this month is the 150th anniversary of the emancipation of slaves and August is the 50th anniversary of her uncle's famous "I have a dream" speech, but she says there's more work to do.
An expanding program in clean and renewable energy at the University of Dayton is exceeding enrollment expectations and drawing students from around the world.
The program at UD has swelled to three times the school's expectations for enrollment since it was launched in 2009.
Among its 50 students, the program has three Fulbright scholars - a record for any one program at the university. Fulbright scholars are international students chosen for their academics and leadership potential.
