Assistant Director of Operations
Kenton Holder was named the Assistant Director of Operations at the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence in 2006. He got his start as a group leader at the Deerfield BGC site and quickly learned the ins-and-outs of creating a positive Club experience for kids and staff alike.
Since he joined the Movement in 2002, his impact on the Club is unquestionable. A jack of all trades, Kenton really does specialize in everything. If he doesn’t know how to do something, give him a minute and he will figure it out. Kenton oversees transportation, facilities, technology, staff trainings, subs and leads the charge on the beloved BGC Volleyball Championship and March Madness Basketball Tournament. Kenton attended the University of Kansas for three years and obtained his degree from Johnson County Community College. He is a sports aficionado and particularly loves golf and basketball.
His favorite Lawrence activity is either golfing or enjoying life as a new dad. Kenton and his wife, Tracy, had a little boy named Evan in 2016.
What makes the Boys & Girls Club special:
“Each day you have the opportunity to change someone’s life.”
Words to live by:
“You can’t stand in the same river twice. Each time it’s a new river. Everyday is a new experience, even if it feels the same.”
