Davon Bayers: A Sportsman for Life
Davon Byers credits Kula chef Wendy Escobedo and assistant chef James McNulty with making his participation in the hospitality program a success.
“They don’t just help with things in the job,” Davon, 19, said. “They help with things in life.”
A 2015 graduate of Asbury Park High School, Davon followed older brother and sister, Mark and Teasia Ruffin, into Interfaith Neighbors’ hospitality training program. Davon says he’s especially happy that he’s now in the position to help newcomers starting out.
Sports was his major interest in high school where he played basketball, football, some baseball, ran track and wrestled.
He plans to go to Brookdale Community College and then on to more college studies to be a physical therapist.
“That’s what I have my heart set on,” he said.
“I like to be active–that’s really all.,” Davon added. “If I’m not here or at my other job, I’m somewhere playing basketball, football, or sleeping. I keep myself busy, active.”
