PASCO, WA - There was a very diverse group of younger and older locals coming together to celebrate the spirit of a very spirited man Monday.

Nationwide Monday was a chance to reflect on one man's dream and the result of his life's work he never got the chance to see. Every year at Columbia basic College a bell ringing at the MLK statue on the Pasco campus marks the special occasion. They also choose to celebrate with a spirit award.

This year Webster Jackson was honored with the MLK Spirit Award. Webster was a longtime Pasco public servant who served as Urban Renewal Director, Assistant to the City Manager and Director of Administrative Services. He told NBC Right Now he did everything in his work for the people of his city.

"I just enjoy working with people. I was able to communicate with people and I always looked in their interests and tried to do what they needed done. It just worked out beautifully."

The ceremonies in Pasco also included interpretive dances, choir singing and a keynote speech about how far we've come as Americans but how far we still have to go. After, they had refreshments from AmeriCorps and activities ready for the kids.
