30 Minutes- Tucson's 25th Annual Drum Major Awards
30 Minutes features excerpts from Tucson's 25th Annual Drum Major Awards. The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. gave a sermon in February 1968 at the Ebeneezer Baptist Church where he said "We all have the drum major instinct. We all want to be important, to achieve distinction, to lead the parade... And the great issue of life is to harness the drum major instinct. It is a good instinct if you don't distort it and pervert it. Don't give it up. Keep feeling the need for being important. Keep feeling the need for being first. But I want you to be the first in love. I want you to be first in moral excellence. I want you to be the first in generosity."

Speakers at Tucson's 25th Annual Drum Major Award Luncheon include: Dr. John Arnold, founder of PPEP (Portable, Practical Education Preparation); Clarence Boykins, Executive Director of the Tucson Southern Arizona Black Chamber of Commerce; Ron Barber, District Director for Gabrielle Giffords; Ruben Reyes, District Director for Raul Grijalva; and former Tucson City Councilman Steve Leal. Tucson High School twins Nicholas and Brenna Trice were the youth Drum Major Awards recipients referred to by some of the speakers.
