Meet Kenneth Westberry

Kenneth Westberry graduated from Davidson College in 2013 where he majored in Political Science concentrating in International Politics.   Kenneth is originally from Columbia South Carolina.  “I am excited to work with the Georgia Justice Project where I will be able to focus on issues that affect our communities throughout the Southeast and across the nation.” 

Kenneth initially came to the Georgia Justice Project through The Davidson Impact Fellowship Program:  a program that supports new Davidson gradates, placing them with a high-level administrator at a non-profit organization that “addresses critical social issues such as health, law, education, and the environment”.  Davidson’s president, Carol Quillen mentioned, “The program will enable graduates to put their education into practice, undertaking significant projects for effective organizations that are making a difference in our community, nation and world.”  Some other organizations sponsoring the fifteen Davidson Impact fellows include:  Catawba Lands Conservancy, Foundation for the Carolinas, Fundación Haciendas Del Mundo Maya (a regional development organization in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula), Teach for America in Charlotte, and the Touch Foundation in New York City (brings healthcare services to people in sub-Saharan Africa). 

Kenneth enjoys Atlanta and is excited to work closely with the Executive Director, Doug Ammar and the entire Georgia Justice Project family.
