Just Say YES – Youth Equipped to Succeed will present New York Times best-selling author and Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy as the featured keynote speaker for its 9th annual Celebration. Tavia and Clark Hunt will serve as Honorary Chairs for the fundraising event.

Known for his leadership style that emphasized decency and respect, Dungy’s values were always evident in his coaching. He led the Indianapolis Colts to Super Bowl victory in 2007, the first such win for an African American head coach. Dungy established another National Football League achievement by becoming the first head coach to lead his teams to the playoffs for 10 consecutive years. After he retired from coaching in 2009, Dungy seamlessly translated his experiences into writing projects, becoming a four-time New York Times bestselling author. Today, Dungy is an analyst for NBC’s Football Night in America and dedicates his passion to a wide variety of charitable organizations, especially those that focus on mentorship.

This year’s Celebration theme, “Reaching New Heights,” reflects the organization’s ultimate goal of providing K-12th grade students with the opportunity to achieve better and brighter futures, regardless of their background or circumstances. The proceeds from the fundraiser will support the Just Say YES mission of equipping today’s youth to succeed via three types of programming: high-impact student assemblies, peer-to-peer mentoring programs and adult influence education (staff development and parent programs).
