Chaminade student exudes calm, peace found in example of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Miles Williams served breakfast to residents of Father Dempsey’s Charities as part of his service work through Chaminade College Preparatory. Williams is one of 32 2017 Martin Luther King Jr. Model of Justice honorees who were recognized Jan. 15.

The first time Miles Williams made breakfast for homeless men at Father Dempsey's Charities, he took his time neatly lining the bacon on the pan, much to the annoyance of his fellow volunteers.
