Hundreds of Detroit Public Schools alumni returned to DPS buildings for the district's first MLK Day of Service. Eighty-four volunteers from Wayne State University's football team, community members and parents descended on DPS elementary, middle and high schools for community projects such as turning a classroom into a computer lab, painting a mural on a school wall and cleaning debris from a nearby house.
