Boeing South Carolina honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Boeing South Carolina teammates took part in the annual Martin Luther King Day Parade in Downtown Charleston on January 21, 2019.

BSC was well represented by a cross section of teammates who braved the cold temperatures to walk in the parade. Teammates greeted spectators who lined the street and passed out pens, buttons, stickers, and other goodies.

“It filled me with such pride and reverence to see people of all ages and ethnicities come together in unity to celebrate the life of this remarkable man as we marched down King Street,” said Ed Downing, a member of BSC’s leadership team who took part in the parade.

“Dr. King’s commemoration is a reflection of the essence of true leadership, all the while remembering how far we’ve come and how far of the journey is still left to travel,” said Downing.

Boeing was a sponsor of the parade as well as the YWCA MLK Business and Professional Breakfast held on January 22.
