Lucas Daniel Boyce, currently the Director of Business and Legislative Affairs for the Orlando Magic, will be the keynote speaker on October 16 at New Beginnings Adoptions and Family Services Annual Celebration of Adoption in Tupelo.

Born prematurely to a drug-addicted prostitute, Lucas Daniel Boyce’s future appeared uncertain at best. His chances at life changed when at 10 days old, DHS placed him in the foster care of Dorothy Lee Boyce.
Lucas calls his adoptive mom Dorothy his hero. In his book Living Proof: From Foster Care to the White House and the NBA, he recalls how her sacrifices allowed his success—along with the success of his many brothers and sisters.
Lucas’ responsibilities, in his current position with the Orlando Magic, include strategic business planning with a focus on developing a new sports and entertainment district in downtown Orlando. Prior to joining the Magic in 2008, Lucas served at the White House under President George W. Bush in a number of different roles from 2003–2008.
