By Byron L. Demery
New author draws on common-sense, real-life experiences 
to inspire youth to greatness 
Forming A Strong Foundation For Your Life helps 
adolescents see consequences of life choices              Byron L. Demery has parlayed his six-year 
long dedication to mentoring youth into authoring 
his debut motivational title, Forming A Strong 
Foundation For Your Life. 
The path to the book was perhaps forged when 
Byron first organized a group of male volunteers to 
serve in a pilot mentoring program at Cleveland’s 
East High School during the 2006–2007 school 
year. Since then he continues to serve as a mentor 
to young males in 4th and 5th grades through 
Greater Cleveland Volunteers’ My Mentor My 
Friend program.
Inspiring young people comes naturally to the Northeast Ohio native, a son and grandson of 
life-long Cleveland public school teachers. Byron, himself a father of two, credits GOD with 
imparting to him the gifts of insight and empathy.
It is Byron’s hope that Forming A Strong Foundation For Your Life will serve as a guide with 
advice that will stay with its readers as they move through adolescence to young adulthood— 
whether or not they had an opportunity to have mentors in their lives. 
Byron holds a Masters of Public Administration with a concentration in Budgeting and 
Finance from Kent State University, where he also earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science 
and Economics.
