Meet Damon Bethea

Damon’s favorite memory at United Way was the College and Career Day experience for eighth graders in 2018. This event helped to connect eighth graders with college, labor, workforce development and high school transition representatives from across the region. Mentors helped their mentees prepare questions for the fair which impressed many of the college representatives and led to its implementation in United Way’s other mentoring programs.
