LPA Marches for MLK

The annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade and celebration took place on January 15th, where Lincoln Park Academy proudly marched through the streets of Fort Pierce alongside local high schools, first responders, city officials, and local businesses. Various LPA factions were present including clubs, performing arts, and athletics. Leading the charge was our esteemed principal and assistant principals, accompanied by our school mascot, Lincoln Parker. The LPA Fife Band marched behind Lincoln, adorned in red and blue and playing a tune led by Mr. Jason Albert. LPA Key Club and both National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society were next, waving at spectators and showcasing our school’s commitment to service. The LPA Cheerleaders followed, gracing our streetside audience with periodic dance and cheer performances. LPA closed their section of the parade with LPA’s Steel Drum Band, which played music while riding on a float.


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day honors Dr. King’s legacy of the advancement of civil rights in the United States, a legacy that allows the diversity and inclusion of schools like Lincoln Park Academy to exist. The parade celebrates the rich history that gave birth to these exciting opportunities for everyone, not just in our school district, but throughout our nation in performing arts, politics, athletics, and all aspects of life. Beyond the parade, Dr. King’s life and commitment to civil rights shall always be remembered.
