Larry's success with the Urban League came rather quickly, serving as the Young Professional President for two terms which created the pathway to serving on the Board of Directors for nearly a decade. "There are many organizations that I've had the honor to be part of," says Larry, "but the Urban League of Lexington is one that I hold dear to my heart. During my time on the board, I've met many individuals who have been a great inspiration to me and who will continue to be a vital part of my life. I can't thank Mr. Peeples enough for giving me the opportunity to serve and I will forever cherish my time spent with the Urban League."
