Crumlin, Jr., who leads the Bonelaw team representing Lane College, attended the reception sponsored by Bone McAllester Norton that followed the day’s events.  More than 100 connected to the state-wide program appeared at the event, including Tennessee Supreme Court Justices and many state and local dignitaries.  Lane College is the first Historically Black College or University to host the event.
