- “Students really found Lonnie’s presentation interesting & enlightening! He gave them actual antidotes about the importance of not only their vote but why they should participate in the process. He gave them hope that they can make a positive difference in this world through organization & commitment to issues important to them. So glad we brought Lonnie to our campus!” -Boyd Jones, Winthrop
