Conexus Joins Governor Youngkin for Partnership in Petersburg One Year Celebration

Conexus is proud to be playing an integral role in Governor Glenn Youngkin’s Partnership for Petersburg initiative and we were honored to be part of the one year celebration!

One of our very own opticians, Frankie Lunsford, was on stage and shared with Governor Youngkin and all the attendees why the work of Conexus matters to the kids of Petersburg. Frankie was joined by two students from Lakemont Elementary School in Petersburg; they have received eye exams and glasses through the Conexus Mobile Vision Clinic program last school year when they were both in the third grade.

From Governor Youngkin’s press release:

“The Partnership for Petersburg was launched on August 22, 2022, with state, local, community, and faith leaders who have come together in this initiative and with support from the Commonwealth to transform Petersburg into one of the best cities to live, work, and raise a family.”
