Kenyon Murray - Assistant Director
"Being the LBA Foundation Co-Founder is a dream realized for me because I have always wanted to be able to give back to the youth of my community. The LBA Foundation will provide access to educational resources that can open doors for boys and girls across the state of Iowa.I came to Iowa because of the opportunity to receive a great education and know that in this position, I will be able to help others realize their educational goals as well."
