BRADENTON, Fla. - On this day on which Martin Luther King, Jr. would have turned 85 years old, a group of 25 Suncoast fifth-graders are preparing for a trip to Atlanta to honor his memory.

The students from Orange Ridge-Bullock Elementary School will leave on Friday to visit the National Historic Site created in his honor.

The trip, which will include a group of chaperones and school staff members, is being paid for through a State College of Florida Grant for MLK Community Service Projects, business partner donations and student contributions.

ABC 7's Bobeth Yates will have more on this story tonight on ABC 7 News at 5 & 6.
