    EL CENTRO — Nine local individuals characterized as ordinary people doing extraordinary things were honored Saturday for embodying and promoting the ideals of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    The recognition came during this year’s MLK Stone of Hope award ceremony, which highlighted the past and present efforts of a local minister, former boxer and farm worker organizer, life coach and electrician, retired public servant as well as a nonprofit executive, co-founder and manager.

    The varied backgrounds of the diverse group underscored the event’s overarching theme, namely that anyone can make a positive impact in their communities if they choose to do so, said Erika Aguilar during her welcoming remarks.
