Shuron Malone, an 18 year old man who was until recently an active gang member in Columbia, spoke to the club on Monday, December 2. His message was an intriguing story of a bad recent past and a new renewed mission of being a positive citizen.

Along with his sister Tia Simmons, Mr. Shuron has recently started the “Stop the Violence” movement in Columbia. Because he’s still young and has contact with active gang members, Shuron serves as a sounding board for those young members and criminals looking to turn their lives around. He has made it his mission to be there for any that need a way out. His talk was honest and passionate, and very moving.

Shuron Malone spoke to the group and did a fantastic job.
