Following graduation from Northwest Nazarene University in his hometown of Nampa, Idaho, Kenton traveled the world. His goal? To gain a broader perspective and see firsthand the problems in developing countries. While working and living at an orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya in Eastern Africa, Kenton saw a little girl wearing a white dress and walking beside him. Kenton was shocked at how small her shoes were.
Kenton's observation generated a question: What if we could create a shoe that could adjust and expand? A shoe that could grow?
Kenton's story doesn't end with "The Shoe" because, for Kenton:
- there are other issues to tackle;
- there are more people who need someone to listen to their ideas and dreams; and,
- there is more work to do to help put kids in the best possible position to succeed by creating innovations and improvements to tools and resources that they use in daily, regular life.
"Make things better by making better things."
