Playworks for every kid

Nathan DeVaughn

Cesar Chavez School

Nathan, a senior at the University of Portland and on the track & field team, is a Recess Rock Star because he is committed to helping kids be physically active through his involvement at recess. He volunteers weekly at Cesar Chavez School to promote healthy play and fitness, as well as anti-bullying messaging, on the playground. He coordinated a volunteer orientation to get this fellow peers and teammates to support Coach Remy at Cesar Chavez.

“Kids love him! He is a rock star and is a tremendous help on the playground. He is a positive role-model for the kids his teammates. I am so glad to have Nathan as part of the Cesar Chavez community.”

–​Coach Remy

You can find him on the playground giving out high-fives and playing basketball, soccer, and scramble! He hopes the relationship between the University of Portland and Cesar Chavez will continue after he graduates.
