Kenyon Lake, Chief Executive Officer, Founder, and Author at My Daddy Taught Me That, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Professionals for dedication, achievements, and leadership in social work.

Growing up, Mr. Lake’s father was his best friend. He played with the original Harlem Globetrotters and was a staple figure in their community, working for the Juvenile Evaluation Center for 30 years alongside his ventures as an activist. When it came time for Mr. Lake to decide on a professional path for himself, he was naturally inspired by his father’s larger-than-life influence. In 2000, Mr. Lake earned a Bachelor of Science in physical education with a concentration in sports medicine from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From there, he took on a position as a social worker at the Buncombe County Department of Social Services. He remains there today, though he has since expanded his professional portfolio.

In 2012, Mr. Lake founded My Daddy Taught Me That, a men’s development program. He continues to excel with the company today as the chief executive officer. To accompany his company, Mr. Lake published a book, “My Daddy Taught Me That…” in 2012. He additionally operates a clothing line by the same name. Reflecting on his abundant success, Mr. Lake credits his relationship with God, as He has given him a platform to establish himself and a light in his heart to reach those around him. Looking toward the future, Mr. Lake would love to expand his company nationally, as well as venture into the consulting industry. With this sentiment, he has been encouraged by many of his peers to run for political office. When he is not working, Mr. Lake cherishes spending time with his family, watching movies, and traveling.
