There may have been a little ice to negotiate outside Martin's West, but inside it was all warmth and good cheer at the Howard L. Cornish Metropolitan Baltimore Chapter of the Morgan State University Alumni Association's 16th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Breakfast.

Music by the Morgan State University Jazz Ensemble added to the sophisticated atmosphere as some 1,100 guests circulated around the ballroom, catching up with old friends and classmates.

Included in the lively get-together: Anthony C. McPhail, event co-chair; Gloria E. Wayman, chapter president; Delores C. Cooke, Dr. Clayton C. Stansbury and George K. McKinney, chapter officers; Cheryl Y. Hitchcock, MSU National Alumni Association president; Dr. Earl S. Richardson, MSU president; Virginia B. Coleman, Howard L. Cornish Chapter founder; Charles "Roc" Dutton, actor and director; Lenny Moore, former Baltimore Colt; Dennis Edwards, WJZ-TV reporter; Kurt Schmoke, Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering partner; Linda Brown, Federal Highway Administration associate director of civil rights; Father Ed Miller, St. Bernardine Roman Catholic Church pastor; Charlotte M. Perry, Bethel Christian School teacher; Anita Turks-Hunter, Maryland Division of Parole and Probation regional administrator; Clyde E. Richardson, Ed Rich Lumber Co. welder; Gordon Stills, the Thank-You Shoppe owner; Joan White, Baltimore City Public Schools curriculum specialist; and Sharon Douglass, Drs. Esposito, Mayer, Hogan & Associates CEO.

The breakfast not only kicked off the day, but kicked in about $30,000 for MSU scholarships.
