Let’s go right into your WHY …
I was the oldest of 3 born in Shreveport, Louisiana to a single mother at the age of 15. I faced violence, murder, drugs, and gangs daily. With all this going on around me, I knew that I would need to find the intrinsic motivation to one day leave Shreveport and do great things for the world I lived in.
Located in the community of Alief in Houston Texas, KTTeeV is dedicated to building the community through information, resources, and opportunities. Through videos, blogs, and forum discussions, we welcome you to engage, learn, and share these resources to build and grow the community in which you live.
Kendrick is not only a school administrator in Houston, Texas, but a certified life coach, speaker, and mentor. He leads the G.R.E.A.T. Boys Club in Alief ISD and works countless hours speaking with At-Risk youth, leaders on his campus, in his district, and throughout the city of Houston. 

Kendrick’s passion is showing young people that through intrinsic motivation there is a way out of every situation you’re placed in.
Through his podcast, Daily K, and the KTTeeV Radio show which reaches thousands weekly,  Kendrick speaks to school leaders, community members, and entrepreneurs across the world about how vital giving back to the community is. The skills, the passion, the first-hand applicable experience, and the interconnections Kendrick brings is what makes him one of the most sought after speakers in education and advocacy in the city of Houston.
