Earlier in 2016, Dr. Lawrence was honored when he was entered into The Congressional Record for his work in business and civic leadership throughout the greater Washington D.C. region and abroad. The official entry, as put forth by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, noted the job growth spurred by LEAP since its inception in 2007, hiring more than 160 employees, in 10 different states (DC, MD, VA, CA, GA, NC, KS, WA, NY, and KY), representing 3 regions of the country and thus, developing both a local and national presence.
Furthermore, The Congressional Record highlighted key honors earned by Dr. Lawrence and LEAP in making mention of Dr. Lawrence’s 2015 DC Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Person of the Year Award, his distinction as the Valedictorian of the 2015 Class of the Small Business Administration’s Emerging Business Leaders Initiative, and his earning of the 2014 Washington Business Journal’s Minority Business Leader Award.
Dr. Lawrence was also recently recognized as a member of a forty-two person executive delegation to Cuba, led by Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III, and the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s President, Ms. Angela Franco.
“There is no greater honor for an American than to be acknowledged by the highest offices in the land for the work you are doing daily to help continue making this the greatest country in the world,” Dr. Lawrence stated when asked about the commendation. “Twice now, we have been recognized by our highest political leaders and offices, and to have President Obama offer his commendation as he completes his great service to our nation is truly a humbling and extraordinary acknowledgement.”
