Optimized-Demario M

Demario, 18, is a May high school graduate of Sheffield High School.  He will attend Southwest TN Community College this fall.

Demario loves to play basketball.  He has been hooping at MAM Olivet since sixth grade, played on his high school basketball team and is now volunteering at MAM Olivet, his home court, helping with the younger boys and girls this summer.

Demario participated in our career readiness program this past school year where he learned soft job skills. Demario said that being a part of that program has taught him how to respect authority and be positive. “I had an anger problem that would get me in trouble in high school. MAM coaches have helped me with that by showing me how to react better and to keep my cool.”

Thank you, Demario, for being a part of the MAM story!
