The 25th anniversary of the African, Latino, Asian and Native American Student Leadership Conference this September brought audience interaction and genuine astonishment from keynote speaker and co-founder Tyrone Holmes M ’89.
“I had no idea it was going to become the outstanding conference it has become,” said Holmes, a business and athletic consultant based in Arizona. “It’s a proud feeling to know I was [one of those who] started this program.”
Through the years the conference has evolved from one day of workshops to a week’s worth of events typically featuring an acclaimed author, music, dance, food, film, workshops and speakers. Traditionally, students from more than 20 colleges around New York state attend.
During his keynote address, Holmes discussed care, competence and consistency — the “3 C’s of Inclusion” — through audience interaction and small group work. l
