Since he began working for JBU in 2008, Kent has helped several students fulfill their educational and professional goals. He loves to hear students' stories because it gives him context for how their experiences have shaped and prepared them for the work ahead. Kent was a non-traditional student himself; he finished his degree while working full-time to support his family. He finds it very rewarding to see students at graduation with their families as they celebrate their accomplishments.

Kent lives in the Rogers area and enjoys golf, woodworking, grilling, hiking, watching sports and video-gaming. He and his wife Becky have three daughters, Christin, Hannah, and Caitlynn, and fostered youth for 18 years. In 2009, Kent and Becky started a nonprofit called Saving Grace after seeing a need to help youth transition from foster care into adulthood. In part, the program grew from the head, heart, hand principle Kent learned as a student at JBU.
