Kendall was born and raised in northeast Texas. He’s the son of a social worker, corrections officer, and healthcare technician who taught him values like service to others—their dedication to their community lit a fire inside him, pushing him to leave the world a little better than he found it.
His high school government teacher encouraged him to participate in his community and that’s what he did at SHSU, joining campus organizations focused on civic engagement. While earning his degree, he worked full-time in multi-family housing/property management. Affordable housing is now his profession and public policy is his passion.
