Don’t let his gentle “island” demeanor fool you. He is a professional, knowledgeable, courteous and an exceptional role model! Anthony (Tony) Longley’s desire to see others succeed is insatiable! From his countless Youth Leadership activities, to his willingness to serve Toastmasters International, Tony truly epitomizes our core values. He carries himself with dignity and is always approachable.
As the District 47 Public Relations Officer in 2011, he and I worked closely while I served as Lt Governor of Marketing. This was a reformation year for the District, as I would be in District 48 the following year. Tony actively supported and encouraged me during the transition year, and well into the many years following. While we have not served in the same District since the transition, we HAVE maintained our friendship. His encouragement, and genuine concern for my wellbeing over the course of my Toastmasters journey is deeply appreciated.
Ronald Rice, DTM,
PDG D48 2013/2014
