The event, at the Darden Alumni Family Center, begins at 7:30 a.m.

This year’s guest speaker is Wilson native Cleveland “Clee” Atkinson Jr., sheriff of Edgecombe County.

Atkinson was a top athlete and senior class student body president when he graduated from Fike High School and has led the more than 100-person Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office since March 2017.

Students from Sallie B. Howard School for the Arts and Education will sing. Scholarships will also be awarded.

Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased from a member of the Wilson Martin Luther King Jr. Commission, the human relations office at Wilson City Hall, 112 Goldsboro St. E., or Darden alumni members. Deadline for purchasing tickets is 5 p.m. Wednesday. Tickets will not be sold at the door.

For more information about the breakfast, call the human relations office at 252-399-2309.
