Kennan Scott was born and raised loving transportation and the New York City Subway. After receiving his Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering from Northeastern University he bolted for the west coast and the allure of automated public transit. The son of a long tenured special education teacher, Kennan always held education in high regard. When given the opportunity to change fields and teach engineering in West Oakland, Kennan saw a chance to make a greater difference in the black community. With making, problem solving and design thinking at the core of his teaching, Kennan has empowered young engineers to develop meaningful solutions to the problems faced in their communities.
Kennan Scott is passionate about creating healthy communities, advancing the field of education through interdisciplinary approaches that merge planning, engineering, advocacy, and coalition building.
