Who is Antoinette Tuff?

On August 19, 2013, Antoinette Tuff was a school bookkeeper, severely depressed that her husband of 33 years had recently left and faced the daunting challenges of raising a son with multiple disabilities as a single Mom. Never did she think that she would become a hero saving more than 1,000 lives, a best-selling author, an international celebrity or a guest of Michelle Obama’s at the State of the Union Address.

The next day, her life changed forever. Antoinette, an accidental hostage negotiator, used her experiences with challenging life issues to successfully convince an armed gunman who entered the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy to give her his AK-47. This is the only school active shooter situation in the US that ended without death or injury to school students, faculty, parents or shooter himself. Experienced hostage negotiators, law enforcement and community leaders praised her intuitive, yet textbook, hostage negotiations on August 20, 2013.

Who is Kids on the Move for Success?

Antoinette Tuff started Kids on the Move for Success back into the DeKalb County School District where she was held hostage on August 20, 2013 with the following programs for youth listed below.

  • Knowledge is Powerful in Literacy - Elementary Schools

  • Discovery STEAM Mentoring Program - Elementary - High Schools

  • Youth Trailblazers - Middle - High Schools

  • Nonviolence is Powerful Program

We look forward to seeing your child at our Holiday Camp. For addtional inforamtion please visit our website at www.kidsonthemoveforsuccess.org or call us at (470) 222-3410.
