Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Resilience Program
NEXT LEVEL STUDENT SUCCESS
“From Mediocre to Magnificent”
If you’re looking for an amazing student success program to accomplish immediate and long-lasting change in your students, then Next Level Student Success Program is your solution.
Let’s be honest. The Student Experience can be challenging mentally, emotionally, and socially, and it’s no surprise that students get overwhelmed and lost in the process. Dennard’s mission with this program is to stop that from happening and empower students to achieve the greatest possible results both in school and in life.
Using unique personal stories, examples from other successful people, and a lot of humor, your students will feel like they are on the ultimate roller coaster of life with the destination being a success. The goal of this presentation is to help your students raise the opinion they have about themselves and take action towards next-level success.

MS DECA Fall Leadership Conference
October 17, 2022
MS Gulf Coast, Gulfport, Mississippi
When I was researching keynote/motivational speakers to attend my conference, I had to make sure I find someone that could bring out the best in my DECA members. DECA is a student organization with business-minded students and future entrepreneurs, and I knew I needed someone that could relate and share their story. I searched and reviewed several bios and video presentations, and no one stood out more than Dennard Mitchell.
Dennard’s bio is the kind of bio of a person who I knew I needed to contact. The video that I watched reassured me he was the one we needed. The interaction with the crowd, the life stories, and his personality just sold me. One thing that I loved about meeting Dennard was the communication before the conference just to get to know him a little better made feel more comfortable with selecting him.
Once, he called my name at the conference and I turned around and saw his face and smile, I knew I was in good hands with my group and we were going to have an AWESOME day and we did!! The students and advisors loved his message and engagement.
Below are a few comments from some of the teachers that brought students to the conference:
I wanted to take a moment and say thank you for a successful conference. When I asked my students what they liked most about the conference, they said they really liked the speaker and the points he made. Thanks for all the time and effort you and your team put into making this conference a success.
Tupelo Career and Technical Center
First, let me say the speaker was PHENOMENAL!!!! He did such a great job, and I believe everyone enjoyed him!
Olive Branch High School
FLC was much better this year. My students really enjoyed the speaker.
I highly recommend Mr. Dennard Mitchell for any speaking engagement with students and adults. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you again, Mr. Dennard Mitchell and I look forward to working with you again with my other student organization.
