He is a Graduate of Leadership Memphis, Executive Class of 2014, and has been recognized as the Memphis Business Journal’s “Top 40 Under 40.”
He received a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering and a master’s degree in Business, both from the University of Memphis.

A past board chair and immediate past vice chair, Kevin represents District 4 which includes parts of East Memphis and Hickory Hill.
Like many of his colleagues, he dedicates many long hours to doing the work of the district. It is his experiences and willingness to work with all stakeholders in the entire education spectrum that gives him such a unique perspective to carry on the work needed for Shelby County Schools.
