Kenneth is a Human Services Graduate (2013) who is now working for Hope Community Resources while working on a Master Degree through UAA.  He was inspired by his professors to not only to excel in his field and be of service to clients in the Anchorage community who experience Developmental Disabilities but to share his story of educational success.  To that end Kenneth chose to write a book, in his spare time, about on how to successfully progress through college as a Veteran with a Family.  He self-published his book entitled:  "A Veteran's Road to College Success" on amazon.com.
