2020 Camp Verde MLK Day March

For the ninth year, Camp Verde resident Chandler Plante led Camp Verde’s annual MLK Day march on Main Street. This year’s march, held Monday, Jan. 20, was followed by a celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the Community Center gym. During the celebration, Plante, Camp Verde Mayor Charlie German and guest speaker Camilla Ross addressed the crowd, as did the Camp Verde Middle School student council and builders club, Camp Verde Girl Scout Troop 7315, and the event’s essay winner, Camp Verde Middle School student Ari Hammond. Pastor Yancey Valdez of Journey Church delivered the opening prayer, and Olive Branch nursing home in Rimrock led the National Anthem. Now 14, Plante has been leading Camp Verde's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration since he was six years old. VVN/Bill Helm
