A fundraiser for the Child Abuse Prevention Program

I’m the morning show host on 106.1 The River and a USSAA umpire in South Central, Indiana. I moved to the Columbus area last May and fell in love literally and figuratively. My wife Chelsie and I just got married November 1st of this year! I’m thrilled to be a part of the CAP prom court and I’m looking forward to helping raise funds for this great organization!
I’ve lived in Columbus most of my life. Graduated from Columbus North where I met my wife of almost 20 years, Alicia. We have three boys; Will (11), Henry (9), and Ollie (7). I’ve worked at Cummins for almost 20 years where I’m currently a director in the Quality Analytics department. I’m currently on the board of directors for San Souci and have previously served on the board of the United Way of Bartholomew County. Our boys all play ice hockey and soccer so you will likely see me at either the ice rink or hockey fields most nights of the week. I’m also the Cubmaster of Cub Scout Pack 550 at First United Methodist Church. I’m honored to be a part of the Prom Court for this year’s Adult Prom and hope to raise a lot of money in support of Child Abuse Prevention programming offered through Family Services.
I think this deserves a personal message along with the picture and bio. My boys are in 1st and 2nd grade and as I wrote I was recounting their exposure to CAP programing at school. I could have cheered and cried (and maybe did) when they came home after hearing the presentation the first time. Then they heard it again this year, and I could have done the same. I am grateful for your work because it has the power to save lives. Someone close to me was repeatedly raped as a child by her grandfather and if only she had known and been assured by a trusted adult to “KEEP TELLING UNTIL SOMEONE BELIEVES YOU” she may have been freed from that assault before he died. I know you know the statistics of children being abused by someone they are related to, so I don’t have to tell you how important it is that this message is given outside the home. I am exceedingly grateful for your work. Thank you for letting me bring attention to it and raise funds for it to continue.

Born and raised in Columbus, he’s always looking for ways to give back. “Columbus always felt like home, even while I attended Purdue. I always looked forward to trips home.

I'm a Columbus native who loves being engaged in the community. I run my own consulting organization that focuses on accessibility and inclusion of individuals of all abilities. I also work as the Community Outreach Coordinator at Advocates for Children. I love to travel and recently moved back from living in Germany for three years where I studied migration and taught social work courses. I'm excited to be a part of the CAP Prom Court and advocate for a great organization supporting the children (our future) in our community!!

Dr. Mandy Wyant is a Chiropractor and the owner of Family Chiropractic and Wellness on Washington Street. Dr. Wyant opened her practice in 2011 and she and her family quickly fell in love with Columbus. She, along with her four associate doctors, pride themselves on helping make Columbus a healthier community by providing quality chiropractic care and by giving back to local non-profits on a regular basis. In 2016, Family Chiropractic and Wellness learned about the wonderful services provided by Family Service, Inc. and they were able to donate over $20,000 that year. When asked to be on the 2020 Prom Court, it only felt natural to again support such an important organization. Dr. Wyant resides in Columbus with her husband, Drew, and their two young children, Will and Virginia.
