While taking a short break from January 2016's MLK service day event, we had the pleasure of meeting Cass Tech High School teacher, Lauralyn Taylor, and her students who volunteered that day. They graciously granted us with an impromptu interview, as we discussed the MLK 2016 service event, the impact of volunteering and the student's overall experience.
