A long-time resident of West Mifflin, Kevin graduated from the West Mifflin Area School District in 2011. As a student, he was involved in many activities, including student council, marching band (saxophone), orchestra (viola), National Honor Society, Key Club, Future Teachers of America, and the school newspaper, the last of which he presided over as editor-in-chief. Kevin also helped to form and served as one of the first Student Board Representatives for the West Mifflin Area School District Board of Directors. 

Since graduating from West Mifflin, Kevin obtained his bachelor's degree in biology from Slippery Rock University and is pursuing his master's degree in education from Point Park University. He works at the University of Pittsburgh as a Laboratory Specialist in the Department of Medicine's Division of Infectious Diseases. 

Kevin has always been passionate about education. During high school, he advocated for students as a student board representative and always believed in the quality of education West Mifflin can offer students. Currently in school to become a secondary education teacher, Kevin understands the obstacles facing students, teachers, and school districts.

As a board member, he hopes to address these obstacles and promote a positive environment for learning and student success: one that unites administration, teachers, students, parents, and the entire West Mifflin community.

Dr. Jonas Salk once said that he wanted to do the most good for the greatest number of people. This has been a guiding principle in my life and is my motivation for running for a seat on the West Mifflin Area School District Board of Directors. If elected, I promise to use this mantra in every aspect of this important position and to always make decisions that are in the best interests of students.
