7 STUDENTS TO GET M.L. KING AWARDS TONIGHT

The annual Martin Luther King Jr. service at the St. Thomas Synagogue, which honors seven high school students for their contributions toward brotherhood and peace, will be held at 7:30 tonight at the synagogue on Crystal Gade.
Guest speaker for the special service will be Dr. Ephraim Isaac, a noted biblical scholar at Princeton University.
Dr. Isaac, a native of Ethiopia, spoke at the synagogue during its Bicentennial Celebration in 1996, and won accolades throughout the community for his insight and erudition. He knows 17 languages, is on the editorial boards of two international scholarly journals on Afroasiatic Languages and Second Temple Jewish Literature, respectively, and is international board chairman of the Peace and Development Committee for Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa.
Dr. Isaac's topic Friday night will be "Jewish/African/American relations into the year 2000."
Dr. Isaac will also present a lecture at 7 p.m. Saturday at the University of the Virgin Islands, Business 110, on "Ancient Axumite Civilization and Religion and Peace in the World."
The public is invited to both events.
The students being honored at this year's Martin Luther King service are:
Eurita Austin, Wesleyan Academy.
Charesma Rhymer, Eudora Kean High School.
Tremain Wheatley, All Saints School.
Sharyn Niles, Charlotte Amalie High School.
Gamira Sprauve, Seventh-day Adventist School.
Westra Bea Miller, Antilles School.
Vivicka Garfield, Sts. Peter and Paul School.
