Steve Givens, President - Unit 17 Resident
I have been a resident of Killearn Estates since 1991. I currently reside with my wife, Christen, and our 3 children on Heather Hill Lane. I am a graduate of Florida State University. I am a college professor and Department Chairman of Sports, Fitness, and Recreation Management at Chipola College in Marianna Florida. Throughout my tenure at Chipola College, I have had extensive service experiences on multiple statewide committees and executive boards that establish policy and provide guidance for a variety of statewide organizations.
My family and I are active members of Faith Presbyterian Church. I am an avid golfer and a member of Killearn Country Club. As a 28-year resident of Killearn Estates, I have had the opportunity to watch our community evolve. My specific interests include storm water/lake revitalization, amenity maintenance, and golf course preservation. I can provide a historical perspective of KHA past initiatives, as well as a genuine commitment to preserve the Killearn Community as a premiere Tallahassee neighborhood.
Susan Dickerson, Vice-President - Unit 42 Resident
My husband Bob Roberts and I moved to the Cameron Chase neighborhood of Killearn Estates in October, 2016. We love being here. After living in a neighborhood without restrictions, it was a welcomed change for us.
We previously lived in the Forest Edge Neighborhood south of town where I served on the board of directors for several years. I enjoyed meeting neighbors and solving neighborhood problems together. We beautified the Veterans’ cemetery and worked with the city to make city water available to all residents.
Through my career with the Department of Children and Families, I served as a social worker, policy analyst and manager. As a member of the Killearn Homeowners Association Board of Directors I will be committed to ensuring that the beauty and values of our neighborhood are carried forward. I will represent all KHA members with honesty and integrity and facilitate transparency and open communication between members and the Board.
Luke Brown - Secretary- Unit 51Resident
My wife, Dorian, son, Alex, and I have lived in Killearn Estates for more than 20 years. Before that, we lived in Fort Lauderdale. Dorian is employed by the State, and Alex by Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
In Fort Lauderdale, I operated a successful law firm that handled a variety of civil matters, was a Civil Magistrate and a Mediator. I was a Board member of the condominium association in which Dorian and I lived. There, I helped other Board members understand their legal, fiduciary, and ethical obligations and helped establish an informal dispute resolution process.
I was recruited to Tallahassee by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation. Later, I joined a national law firm to build its insurance practice. I taught at FSU’s College of Business and its Law School and have written for several international publishers. Currently, I write about insurance and legal issues for laypeople, businesses, and legal professionals.
I wish to serve on the Killearn Estates Board to ensure adherence to all legal, ethical, and fiduciary responsibilities owed to homeowners. I will do so by exercising sound judgment in matters that come before the Board and by advocating for:
• Transparency, not Secrecy in Board Operation
• Sound Interpretation, not Manipulation of Rules
• Fiscal Responsibility before Dues Increases
• Neither Sale nor Development of Community Property without Required Membership Approval
• Advanced Notice of Issues and Member Input before Voting
• Reasonable and Consistent Enforcement of Community Standards
• Orderly Conduct of Meetings
David HOOdenpyle, Treasurer- Unit 3Resident
David A. Hoodenpyle and his wife, Lois have resided at Shamrock South for over 32 years. Their 2 children live and work in Tallahassee where they attended Leon county schools and graduated from TCC, FSU, and FAMU. David retired from Unisys Corporation, specializing in Bank computer accounting systems, following duty in the Air Force, as a computer field engineer on fighter intercept controls, where I was awarded the Joint Service Commendation medal for service at NATO in Mons, Belgium. In addition, I started a Silicon Graphics dealership business with customers statewide and was later appointed Director of Recruitment at ITT technical institute Tallahassee after selling the business. David completed the Tallahassee Citizens Police Academy in ‘96 and has volunteered at TPD in records and evidence management and the financial crimes division. He has volunteered at meals on wheels and helped raise corporate funds for the United Way and Toys for Tots. David holds a Bachelor and AA degree from Park University and the University of Maryland in Business Management. I am running for the board to be a voice for all members in the Killearn community. In order to accomplish that, we must have board transparency and timely notice of agenda, minutes, special meetings, and have member input prior to any vote. We must have a sound interpretation of the bylaws and not an invention. We must have a reasonable enforcement of community standards not harassment. I am committed to bringing common sense back to the board and make it representative of us all.
Jeff Graverholt - Unit 39 Resident
Jeff spent 10 years in the US Navy as a proven leader and started pilot training and ultimately selected helicopters and completed training in Pensacola and San Diego before arriving at his first assignment in Jacksonville Florida. While stationed there he completed two deployments on the aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower and conducted a home port change to Norfolk, VA. There he served on the Expeditionary Combat Readiness Center staff in support of non-traditional expeditionary sailors and deployed once again as the Helicopter Element Coordinator on the staff of the Commander Carrier Strike Group Twelve, where he organized the future plans and operations planning for a round the world deployment and homeport change of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt.
After completing his service to his country Jeff transitioned to civilian life by moving to Tallahassee Florida and began working for a local engineering firm as the Operations Manager responsible for daily operations and resource allocation of his civil engineering teams. Throughout his career he has sought opportunities to give back to his communities by volunteering as the Morale, Welfare, and Recreation officer at ECRC and the Wardroom Officers fund manager as CSG-12, where he demonstrated the ability to effectively establish a budget plan, fundraise, and lead committees to achieve the desired community goals. Jeff is eager to continue his volunteer work giving back to his community and the Killearn Homeowners Association.
Paul Munyon - Unit 51 Resident

I have completed the Air Force’s senior leadership schools, and I have earned a bachelor’s degree from FSU and an MBA from Liberty University. I also hold a project management professional certification.
In the Air Force I was an instructor weapons systems officer on the F-111, a navigator on the C-130H and AC-130A, and Special Forces MC-130E.

As a 24 year Killearn resident I feel I have an excellent understanding of the needs of the Killearn community, the challenges we face living in a maturing neighborhood with outside encroachment forces, and the need to maintain a strong, vibrant, and welcoming community. I wish to offer my knowledge and experience to help our community meet the challenges ahead and to be a champion for our Killearn families and community.

April Killian - Unit 17Resident
My family and I moved to Killearn in 2020, and I have been in love with our neighborhood ever since. I work from home as a director for a large international advertising agency, and my husband, Michael, is a professor at FSU. We have two children ages 9 years and 6 months.
I am an FSU alumna who graduated with my bachelor’s in social work and completed my education with an MBA in marketing. We value the Tallahassee community and have called it our home for most of the last two decades with some time lived in Orlando, London, and Dallas TX.
My father is a military veteran, so I have lived in over 20 different homes while growing up. For that reason, I have always appreciated a welcoming community. I have also personally experienced living in and working with a variety of different communities, and I believe these diverse experiences would help me to add to our sense of community in Killearn Estates.
If elected to the board, my goal would be to serve as a voice for younger families as well as the existing residents alike. I want to contribute my marketing and advertising experience to ensure information is shared in a timely and efficient manner. Working to maintain the beauty and safety of our community while offering up a range of ideas for potential improvement would also be a personal aim if serving on the Killearn board.
