Erin Mueller was selected as the 2020 Dr. Martin Luther King Model of Justice winner from Valle Catholic High School.
Most Rev. Robert Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis, celebrated Mass at the Cathedral Basilica in St. Louis for the preservation of peace and justice on January 19.
A reception and awards presentation ceremony for the 13th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Model of Justice honorees took place after Mass.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Model of Justice Award is presented annually to Catholic high school students who have demonstrated a commitment to service to humanity through their attitude and their work in the broader community. The students selected have made justice a central part of their lives and have committed themselves “to the noble struggle for equal rights.”
