Related Experience

As an active student leader at FVSU, Lawrence has served as a Charter Member and Director of Communications for the FVSU Chapter of Collegiate 100 (2014-2016). He has also interned with the Communications Department at FVSU and also served as the Editor In-Chief of the student’s newspaper, the FVSU Peachite. Although there isn’t a current NABJ Student Chapter at FVSU, Lawrence is currently in the process of starting a chapter and sustaining it for the near future.



I feel that I would make an excellent candidate for the National Association of Black Journalists Student Representative because of the experience that I have in student leadership through various organizations. I have served for over 6 years in student leadership, both in high school and college. Student Advocacy is my main priority when representing a student body. I have dealt with the important issues such as college affordability, college involvement, student fee increases, and organizational development and sustainability in the past and will continue to in the future.
