Gregory Eaton, Michigan's first African American lobbyist

Gregory Eaton has spent most of his life in the city of Lansing where he became the first African American lobbyist in the state of Michigan. 

Due to his impeccable status, he created new gateways for other African Americans to succeed after him. 

Gregory developed his hardworking attitude from shadowing his father who had a shoe shining business in Lansing, which inspired him to be independent and start his own janitorial service. 

All of Eaton's accomplishments speak for themselves, but what keeps him going every day, is giving back to the community of Lansing.

Every year he gives five college scholarships and has mentored many  young men, including Magic Johnson. 

Mr. Eaton's excellence as a business man, combined with his passion makes him one of a kind.
