Episode 1 An interview with Denver's Living Legend Lonnie Porter Lonnie Porter: In 1996, he began the Lonnie Porter Leadership Academy (formerly Summer Academy) at Regis University, an annual three-week academic summer program that provides at-risk youth (ages 8-to-18) from the Denver area the skills to stay in school, combat negative peer pressure, graduate from high school and attend college. Students receive training in leadership development, teamwork, conflict resolution, communication skills and technology. Subsequently, the academy, which is free to all participants, provides full scholarships to Regis University for those who successfully complete the long-term program. Six former students from the academy are presently attending Regis University. The academy received a large boost in 2006 when NBA All-Star and 2004 NBA Finals MVP Chauncey Billups joined up with Porter in efforts for the academy. With the change in the academy's name to the Porter-Billups Leadership Academy, came a boost in financial support as the academy raised over 575,000 dollars in 2006. In 2009 he was awarded the Trailblazer Community Service Award from the Colorado Association of Black Journalists for his PBLA work. Also in 2009 he was one of 12 invited to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual legislative conference in Washington D.C. PBLA:
