"He had the pleasure of attending a conference where coach Summons spoke and was very impressed. Unfortunately, last year her schedule was not available so we continued to follow her accomplishments in hopes she would be available this year. We are honored to have her be part of this year's conference!"

"It was truly an honor to be given the opportunity to speak to our youth, coaches, sports enthusiasts, leaders and members of the South Florida Community, and share my message; having the Eye of A Champion: Performing With A Purpose, said Summons."This organization's mission and initiatives provide a strong framework and foundation for leadership and successful life skills," she added.
