I am honored to serve as President of BUFConnect, the young professional arm of BUF of MI with it's rich heritage of 46+ years of empowering communities and changing lives together, however I am making a personal donation and pledge of support to BUF of MI to aid the important funding and programming that is making a real difference in our community NOW! This year alone, I've witnessed the evolution of the BUF of MI Leadership Circle and Black Male Youth, 5-year mentorship program: BUF 45 as well as, Project Aviation and Premier Sponsor for ACE Summer Aviation Camp held at Wayne State University and several city airports. My tenacious son Phoenix, and other metro Detroit youth learned about the field and fundamentals of aviation from local pilots and federal aviation leaders! As parents, professionals and business owners we must continue to fuel these and other BUF of MI initiatives for continued community empowerment. Please fell free to contact me for more of my personal testimonial about the continued impact BUF of MI | BUF Connect is making on Michigan and with your help, the nation. Join the movement of Detroit's professionals uniting for impact to serve and reinvest in the communities we live, work and love.
