NEW WILMINGTON, PA – Westminster College will celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. at a special vespers service at 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27, in the college’s W. Charles Wallace Memorial Chapel. This event was originally scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 20, but postponed due to inclement weather.

Since 2007, Samuels has served as the head coach of the Farrell High School football team, which finished the 2018 season with a 15-0 record and claimed the PIAA Class A State Championship.
Music during the service will be provided by the New Castle Community Choir.
