Gov. DeSantis Appoints FIU Employee David Kenton to Council That Empowers Kids in Broward

March 12, 2020

David Kenton never forgot the help he received during his challenging childhood.

Now he is primed to pay it back.

In February, Gov. Ron DeSantis appointed Kenton to the Children’s Services Council of Broward County (CSCBC). FIU’s senior associate director for Enrollment Services-OneStop will help lead the CSCBC in pursuing its mission: to provide leadership, advocacy and resources to enhance children’s lives and empower them to become responsible, productive adults.

“I think what I’m looking forward to most is the opportunity to serve and give back,” Kenton said.

Kenton was born in New York and raised in Broward to a teenage mother who gave him up for adoption. He ended up living with his great-aunt, who raised him like a son. Their residence was near where Sunrise Boulevard meets I-95.
