La’Don completed a quick journey through the order’s degrees, from his First Degree ceremony in November 2013 to Major Degrees in February 2014 to entry into the Fourth Degree last December. During his first year in the order, he earned the coveted Shining Armor Award. That’s earned by “rookie” members who accomplish five missions: 1.) Be involved in three service programs; 2.) Attend at least three general business meetings; 3.) Receive their Major Degrees; 4.) Meet with the council’s insurance agent; 5.) Recruit at least one new member. La’Don and wife Ivonne are Holy Spirit Zone Shepherds and are also involved in the Eucharistic Minister program, including providing Holy Communion to patients at Charlton Methodist Hospital. He works at the DISD Service Center. They have four children: Dominique (17), La’Don, Jr. (12), Donovon (11) and Devyn (5).
