Joel Ledgister

Class Twenty-Four
"Sleep is the cousin of death, no plans to doze off"
Joel joined Progressive Black Men Incorporated, and the reason all stems down to one word: Brotherhood. During his first year at UF, he felt like he was missing something. He did not have a support system or a close-knit group of people that he could rely on. Progressive Black Men, Incorporated was the answer to all of his problems and has brought him a group of brothers that he trusts with his life.
