Meet Our Presenters

Dontae’ DeVaughn

I’m 37 years old, divorced and a father of 2 daughters. I am from Dayton and graduated from Trotwood High School.
My favorite hobby is working out and doing physical activities. My favorite game is Spicy Uno. My favorite movies are The Green Mile and The Pursuit of Happiness 
My favorite quote is Want better, Do better – Author: Me lol
What I like most about my job is that I can leave a positive imprint on the lives of the students.
I believe that every student has the potential to grow, progress and achieve success if they understand the power they have through the choices they make.

As a child, my family nicknamed me “Motor Mouth” because of being of many words.  My mother’s favorite game to play with me was the Quiet Game. I always lost.  Today, I allow my many words to empower youth to make healthy life choices and reach their fullest potential; which is why my job is so rewarding to me.  My favorite quote is “For every choice there is a consequence therefore choose wisely!

Melissa Tackett

Avid lover of humans, coffee, memes, and guacamole. I go throughout my day with the mindset that attitudes are contagious, and I try to make mine worth catching.  I believe the information in all of our programs can benefit teenagers where they are now and where they will be in the future. Through life’s journey, I make sure to live with these words of wisdom: “Don’t let your struggle become your identity.” By Joshua Hook.

Morgan Snyder

I am 24 years old (although I am often mistaken for a high school student when I’m presenting our program!) and a wife of 2.5 years to Caleb (he’s what I’m smiling at in the picture you see there). Spending time with so many unique groups of students and having such life-changing conversations with them always keeps my extroverted nature satisfied and gives me hope in future generations (how did I get such an awesome job!?). Outside of work, my hobbies include breakfast, lunch, dinner, time in the gym or nature, people-watching and playing Bohnanza (the best bean farming game in the whole world). I love inside jokes; I’d love to be part of one someday.

Thank you all for taking the time to read about me; I’ll leave you with a quote from the wise Leslie Knope, “We have to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third.”

One of my most valued lessons: “Choose you!” Be willing to invest in your own health and well-being in order to show up as your best self for someone else. We’ve all heard the saying, “Life is what you make it!” Did you know you can improve your odds of having a great life by simply investing in you? As a In-School Presenter and a Family LIfe Educator, I love seeking and providing information that motivate and initiate healthier, happier, and better living. I welcome you along the journey. What are you waiting for? Let’s get started and “GO for the GOLD!”

Terrance Landers

I’m 39 years young and I live in Dayton. I have been married for 6 years and have a total of 10 children. I graduated from Greene JROTC Academy. I love basketball and used to play but now I’m a great spectator. I like football as well. I love being an In-School Presenter for more reasons than one, but ultimately seeing how I can impact teenager’s lives and teaching them how to make healthy choices brings a joy within itself. We serve some very bright, smart and intellectual students!

Danny Brooks

I love my wife, Dungeons and Dragons, personality tests, and my job! I really like playing any kind of board games, video games, or sports. These things have taught me that you can make choices that affect your success or you can whine about the hand you’re dealt and blame circumstances. I’ve been dealt some bad hands just like everyone has, but I believe it’s how we deal with those things that shows our true character. Be better than the world around you.

One of my favorite quotes is “If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” because in truth, no one is inferior to anyone. We are all equal. This is why I love my job, because I get to talk to high school students about relationships and help them see that there are ways to end up with the right person and have healthy boundaries.

I was patient and waited 28 years before I met the love of my life and it was so worth it! I’m passionate about the fact that our high school students shouldn’t be told to settle for less. Go for the Gold!

Kim Danon

I love my role because I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with many amazing, talented presenters and awesome students. Being in a position to impact today’s teens is an honor and privilege that I do not take lightly. Helping teens receive pertinent information that I did not have the opportunity to hear as a teen, fuels my passion to help young people make life-altering, path-changing and success-planning decisions that will affect generations to come.

I love my family, my friends and all the adventures that my life has offered to make me who I am today!
My favorite quote is “Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”
