Greater Mt. Sinai Baptist Church in Lynch will be the host church for this year’s Super Sunday event on Feb. 28, sponsored by the Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College Diversity and Inclusion office.
Super Sunday is designed to help African-American teens make the decision to go to college.
The program will begin with a morning service at 11 a.m., followed by dinner and then a college fair at 1:30 p.m.
During the event, the 2016 Super Sunday Hall of Fame recipient, Mitchell Earl Brown, will be honored.
Brown is a 1970 graduate of Cumberland High School and a SKCTC alum. He graduated from the University of Kentucky in 1975 with a bachelor’s degree in general studies.
Brown joined the Kentucky State Police in November of 1975. There, he served in many capacities, including detective and special security to Gov. Paul Patton. After 27 years of service, he retired from the state police in 2002.
He then continued his public service as a major with the Richmond Police Department until his retirement in April 2014.
Brown was called into ministry in June 2000, was ordained in October of 2004 and is currently the pastor of Pleasant Run Baptist Church in central Kentucky. He is also very active in the community and is a member of several local organizations.
Brown and his wife, Rita, have two children and currently live in Berea.
In addition to the Hall of Fame induction, the Carolyn Sundy Diversity Achievement Award will also be presented at the program.
