“Dwayne Bryant has been a consistent and passionate voice of reason to students for over 23 years. Under my leadership as Chief Education Officer in Chicago Public Schools and now Superintendent of Matteson School District 162 and CEO of Southland College Prep, I am always looking for talented presenters to supplement our academic rigor with social emotional learning and life skills. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we needed a highly engaging message of hope to permeate the homes of our families. Mr. Bryant was able to readjust with our district to create highly engaging content for our families to continue to focus on being successful individuals as well as productive citizens. I believe this content would positively impact families across the entire nation.”
