EDUCATION + EXPERIENCE = OPPORTUNITY
Trevon - 2016 Graduate of Virginia State University, VA
My name is Trevon Lawson. I am a first-generation college graduate and currently employed as an Electronics Engineer at Lockheed Martin. I first encountered NOW when I was a junior at North Valleys High School. NOW significantly influenced my decision to pursue a college education as well as my deicision to attend and subsequently graduate from Virginia State University. NOW instilled in me great public speaking skills and taught me the ability to seek and go after opportunities that were unknown to me. I'm also grateful to NOW for being alongside me through my journey to who and where I am today. I truly appreciate the opportunities NOW has given me and hope other students will avail themselves of the opportunity to allow NOW to help them further their education.
