After graduating from Rutgers School of Law in 1971, Guyot moved to the District of Columbia and became active in politics in the nation’s capital. In 1978 Guyot was pivotal in the election of Mayor Marion Barry and worked for the District government for many years.
Mr. Guyot, a loyal supporter of Howard University,was key supporter of the LeDroit Park Initiative, a partnership between Howard University, the Fannie Mae Foundation and community leaders to restore and construct new homes in the historic neighborhood adjacent to campus. Most recently, Mr. Guyot backed the campus master plan approved earlier this year by the DC Zoning Commission for 15 years.
Mr. Guyot, a LeDroit Park resident and elected ANC commissioner for many years, labored and advocated for the neighborhood and its residents. Many of the improvements in facilities and relations are due in a large part to our beloved neighbor.
The countless sacrifices and contributions that Mr. Lawrence Guyot made in his lifetime will forever resonate among the Howard University community, the District of Columbia and the nation. He was a true friend of Howard University and a champion of the community that we will never forget. We extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends and promise to continue in his legacy of passion and equality.
