In addition to serving Miami-Dade County, Daveon aspired to help young boys who looked like him and to assist and guide them in their quest for greatness. He also served as an Athletic Coach and a Mentor for many. To continue his journey, the foundation was established and implement a scholarship fund in his honor.
