Kenley Maynard's Bio
Kenley H. Maynard, a top-notch athlete in his day, is the distinguished patron of the 33rd Annual Inter-Primary School Meet.  Kenley, the youngest son of Marilyn and Pastor Eric Maynard, grew up in the upper Ramsbury community.  He attended the Ivor Walters Primary School from 1991-1997.  In everything he did, Kenley lived out his school's motto of 'Aim for the Stars and you will Reach the Sky". 

Kenley’s contribution to track and field was impeccable and as a result the records that he established during his tenure, stood for many years.  Kenley’s Track Statistics at the Ivor Walters Primary School, formerly Prospect Primary School, shows: 1st place in 100m & 200m in1993 to 1997, broke the 100m record in1994, 1996 and 1997, the 200m record in1997 and he was the Victor Ludorum in 1994, 1996 and 1997.  For the Gulf Insurance Inter-Primary Championship Meet, Kenley was Class champion for his category in 1994 and 1995. He was the Prospect Primary School team’s captain in1997.  Kenley also represented Nevis in the Leeward Island Youth Championship in Anguilla in 1997.  He was a core member of the dream team that led the then Prospect Primary to many Inter-Primary School Championships: such as in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, and 1996.  Kenley also excelled in the academic arena and was named the co-valedictorian for the class of 1997. After his primary school career, Kenley continued to excel in sports and academics.  Kenley is an alumnus of the Charlestown Secondary School and 6th Form College where he graduated in 2004.

Kenley was also a star football member of a team that represented Nevis in a tournament, in the world renowned city Chicago, Illinois, USA.  He obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting from Cameron University in December, 2010.  Kenley attributes his success to God who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think.  He is a Trust Administrator at AMS Trustees (Nevis) Limited and I dare say a dedicated LA Lakers fan.  He enjoys mentoring the next generation through various avenues such as music, sports and leadership.  He often quotes Mark Twain by telling mentees: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines.  Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover".  Kenley believes that if you can dream it, you can achieve it.
