What Others Say About Dean

“You matter. It's such a simple phrase but there is so much power behind those two words. The greatest fear of most school administrators is having a student take their own life. This program helps instill in each and every child that they are a part of something more. That each and every child is important. That each and every child matters. Thank you guys for putting into words what so many of us feel. Each and every student matters to us all.”

“Dean is a dynamic and interesting speaker who engages the students on suicide prevention. He is impactful and very beneficial. Students were engaged and responsive after his seminar. We would look forward to having Dean Sikes back again every year. I pray this letter will serve as a recommendation to promote this program in all Mississippi schools.”
