Kyle was born in Laurel, Mississippi and grew up on a farm near the Mississippi Gulf Coast. When asked about touring Oakbrook for the first time Kyle responded, “we asked about no locks on the lockers and realized that this was the result of a culture among students that treated each other with honor and respect. We loved that being exceptional was nurtured and expected by teachers, administrators and students alike.” Kyle and his family moved to Spartanburg in 2006 via Charlotte, NC and Boston, MA. He earned his BS in Business Management at Mississippi State University and later graduated with a certificate in Non- Profit Management from Stanford University. Prior to joining the administration at Oakbrook, Kyle worked to raise funding for new housing at Glenn Springs Academy. Kyle has been a Scout leader for over 14 years as well as active in the MSU Alumni Association and other community organizations. Kyle is married to Trudy, Senior VP and Chief Marketing Officer for Advance America. They have two children, Zachary and Haley who both attend Oakbrook. Kyle and his family are members of Church of the Advent in Spartanburg.
