2021 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

Published January 15, 2021

Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. For the past several years, Newport News Shipbuilding has hosted in-person celebrations for shipbuilders to honor Dr. King’s legacy. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the company is commemorating the holiday virtually this year.

For generations, men and women from different backgrounds have come together to build the ships that help defend our freedom. Values Dr. King advocated – such as respect, diversity and civility – are fundamental at NNS and help define who we are.

As we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, please take some time to think about what you can do – no matter your position – to help make NNS a better place for all of us.

You can watch NNS’ virtual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration video on the NNS’ public-facing website, MyNNS, or the HII YouTube channel. Please note: No charge is provided. Employees who watch the video must do so on their own time.
