North Platte Community College students stand beside an “I Have a Dream” board in the McDonald-Belton Building Monday afternoon. The board was part of NPCC’s celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, organized by the college’s student life department.

Students were encouraged to post their own dreams on the board. They were also treated to snacks and watched “Our Friend, Martin,” an educational film about Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement, in the theater.
