Students Plan to Enjoy MLK Holiday – Despite Forecast

This year Martin Luther King Jr. Day is expected to be a tricky one for driving.

On Sunday,  Millersville is expected to receive a “light wintry mix” of snow and rain showers, according to Weather.com. The winter weather is expected to run throughout the week  with temperatures ranging from 39 to 43 degrees.

Penn Manor students have a 4-day weekend vacation from school and many plan on working around the predicted weather.

Senior Becca Conner, excitedly said, “I’m going to King of Prussia!”

Another senior, Jimmy Durborow, claimed, “I’m going to hang with my girlfriend and some friends and play a game or two.”

The weather isn’t stopping any of the students here at Penn Manor from doing things they enjoy doing.

Like junior Larry Thomas, students plan to go to work and others, such as junior, Cassey Graeff, are going out for their driver’s license.

Abby Newport, a junior forgot about  the Monday and Tuesday off.  She said, “I don’t know what I’m doing! But, Friday, I have a basketball game and Saturday, I’m going to Veritgo (a teen club in York). I’m so excited!”

Penn Manor students and staff will begin a new semester Wednesday.

  1. It is disrespectful to refer to the great American hero Martin Luther King Jr. as MLK. Please pay this great man the RESPECT that he well deserves and refer to him by his full name, Martin Luther King Jr.
