In early 2005, Sonny Long started his own business, SL Vision. During this time Sonny Long and his company established the Terrance Harraway Scholarship Fund[1] in memory of his cousin who was murdered in 1994. He also became actively involved in the community by launching Youth Business Conferences[2] which encourages young men and women to further their education and gain knowledge on the importance of business ownership.
