Levar Stoney ('04), the first African-American man to lead student government at JMU, is Virginia's new Secretary of the Commonwealth. In his position, one of the most influential in state government, Levar brings a personal civility that is desperately needed, along with expertise honed during a career in politics and government. The former executive director of Virginia's Democratic Party, Levar is known for his ability to bring people together. In doing so, he is changing the temperament of government from animus to accord, and bringing President Madison's belief in civil discourse to the highest levels of government in the commonwealth.
