Closer to home, back in Medford we had some of our own Martin Luther King Jr. celebrations underway. The annual Martin Luther King Junior Day celebration was held at Central Medford High School this afternoon.NBC 5's very own Larry Miller emceed the event. The key note speaker was Maurice Woodard who used to be involved in a civil rights organization. The purpose of the event was to honor the civil rights leader and to promote peace.
