#MyForceforHealthHero is Dewaye Fountain

My name is Jeremiah Meeks and I attended the You Do Matter Virtual STEAM² Camp this summer and we were asked to choose a Force for Health Hero.

#MyForceforHealthHero is Dewayne Fountain. He also is a pastor of Light House Christian Fellowship.

One reason why I choose DeWayne is because he is part of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians and he cares for others.

Another reason why he is #MyForceforHealthHero is because he gave out masks to the community.
