HUDSON, NY — U.S. Representative Antonio Delgado (NY-19) on Sunday joined the Hudson Interfaith Council’s Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Service at Shiloh Baptist Church. Delgado presented the “Micah 6:8” leadership award to a graduating senior in the church community from Hudson High School.

“I was honored to present the Micah 6:8 award to an outstanding example of servant-leadership in this community and an exemplary young man, Pierre S. Jeune. Micah 6:8 asks us to ‘act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.’ Pierre, while still young, is an example of living a life that does just that. How meaningful it is for us to recognize this college-bound student on the eve of celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — a man who lived his life with unconditional love and service to all,” said Delgado.  

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Delgado also delivered the keynote address at the Schenectady County Human Rights Commission's MLK Coalition 34th Annual MLK Anniversary Celebration Program and Community Town Hall on Sunday.
