Happy MLK Day!

We hope those of you who were able to take the day off enjoyed your Monday. KTRE has worked today with a full staff and we hope you'll join us tonight.

At 6, Donna McCollum takes you to three separate MLK events in Nacogdoches County, where they celebrate love, unity and service. She'll tell you why participants feel Reverend King would have been proud.

Holley Nees brings you the festivities from Lufkin and will introduce you to a man who never attended a desegregated school. That story's at 10.

Also at 10, see what Lufkin residents think about an idea to make a Barbie doll who has cancer, in order to inspire young girls battling the disease.
