Tallahassee, Fl. – As Florida A&M University (FAMU) celebrates its 120th Anniversary, FAMU will sponsor its annual Homecoming Gala honoring the Honorable Alfred “Al” Lawson, Jr., a state senator, on Friday, November 2, at 7 p.m. at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center. A reception is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
As a state senator for nearly 10 years, Senator Lawson was recently designated as the leader of the 2008-2010 Senate Democratic Caucus and has served as a member of the Florida House of Representative for nearly two decades.
“This is an opportunity for FAMU to salute a loyal Rattler who has clearly contributed to FAMU’s advancement,” said FAMU President James H. Ammons. “He has been a staunch supporter of FAMU and the Tallahassee community and we are looking forward to showing him how much we appreciate his efforts.”
Elected to the Senate in 2000, Lawson is an insurance agent with Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company and president of Lawson & Associates, a marketing firm. He received his bachelor’s degree from FAMU and a master’s degree in public administration from Florida State University.
